2016 CoC GIS Toolkits Posted July 19, 2017

HUD has posted the 2016 HUD CoC GIS Toolkit for Communities on the HUD Exchange.
The HUD CoC GIS Toolkit for Communities expands the mapping resources available to HUD Exchange users by providing a no-cost downloadable software tool that allows users to interact with professional quality GIS maps.
The toolkit includes data on CoC Boundaries, HUD Geocodes and Preliminary Pro Rata Need, Housing Inventory Count data, U.S. Census demographics, detailed street maps, and more. Toolkit capabilities include mapping and saving addresses and other custom locations, producing custom routes with intermediate waypoints, and producing custom maps with annotation.
Users access pre-compiled projects through a free software product called ArcReader and are able to open and explore HUD specific project data as well as design and print custom maps. No special software or map skills beyond basic computer skills are required, meaning users can quickly get started working with maps of their communities.
