Inside this Issue:

Schools Data Center

It’s back to school time! MAG, in partnership with Read On Arizona, has built some powerful tools for exploring and comparing Arizona schools. With the Explore Arizona Schools tool, parents can learn about the education options for their family, from pre-K to high school and see how schools have performed over the years. The Arizona Schools Data Center is a comparative dashboard that provides analytics on enrollment, attendance, and assessment trend results by school, grade, and subgroup.

GIS Data Portal

MAG has made a number of geographic information systems (GIS) files publicly available for easy access and download. Census data, employers, land use, long range projections, freeways, bikeways, rail, boundaries, and more can be downloaded in a number of useful formats from

Heat Relief Network

The Heat Relief Network will be active through September and encourages anyone seeking heat relief or a place to drop off donations to utilize the Heat Relief Locator on their mobile device. After entering an address, ZIP code, city or by using their current location, the user can view a list of the nearest heat relief locations and donation sites, filter by what is currently open, and link to Google Maps for directions.

Virtual Maps & Data Training

Dates and times for the FREE 2022 MAG Maps & Data virtual workshops are posted on the map viewer training site, with links to the Eventbrite registration sites. These webinars are designed to introduce you to MAG’s powerful interactive map viewers and exclusive regional datasets, which can be accessed by anyone from any online device.
