1 Uses for OnTheMap Economic Planning & Time Series - Where is the labor supply located? - Which industries are growing or declining over time? Transportation planning & analysis - Between which areas do workers commute? Emergency management - Daytime population estimates
2 F-Scale: F3 between Clever and NixaPath Length: ~40 miles Width: 1/4 to 1/2 mile Time: 10:08 – 11:00 P.M. *Source: National Weather Service OnTheMap Mapping Missouri Tornado Path OnTheMap
3 OnTheMap: Where People Go to Work Where do people who live in the path of the tornado work?
4 Where do workers employed at jobs located in the path of the tornado live? OnTheMap: Where Workers Live
5 OnTheMap LEDs online dynamic mapping tool 42 states online Where do workers live? Where do residents work? Reports on age, earnings, and industries with three years of data Cross-state flows User-selected areas Geographic layers such as community colleges and zip codes OTM v 3 (Beta) released June 1; full version to be released on August 31 with up to 4 new states and 2002 – 2006 data REVISE
6 Caveats About Beta ….. OnTheMap Version 3 Beta is for testing new features and capabilities only. There are known bugs. Not all geographic layers, years of data, states and functions are available in the Beta release. OnTheMap Version 3 Beta data may not be reliable. Use OTM Version 2 for analytical purposes (until August 31, 2008).
7 4 Steps for Creating OTM Maps and Reports 1.Choose geographic layers you wish to show on your map 2.Select from available data options (years, job type, labor segment) 3.Define geographic study area 4.Pick analysis type
8 Selecting Your Basic Geography Type in the name or number of any of the areas shown in the dropdown box.

22 Definition: Rollup Areas Definition: Rollup Areas Rollup areas - aggregates information on workers by selected boundary layers; can select three areas (defaults are cities/towns, counties and states) New Feature! Results by ZIP Codes, WIAs, Congressional Districts
25 The Results Tab Animate with Points and/or Thermals Output to HTML, XLS, PDF
26 Time Series Animation: Points and Thermals 2004 2003 2002
