Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Areas and Combined Statistical Areas. Improved timezones. Project spotlight.

NEW! Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Areas and Combined Statistical Areas

Where delineated by the Census Bureau, we now return Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Areas and Combined Statistical Areas. These fields are included when you request the census data field.

This data is now available via spreadsheet upload and API. For API implementation, please see our documentation.

Example of Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Areas and Combined Statistical Areas

IMPROVED! Timezones

We now return timezone information in a tzdb-compliant format, including:

  • Standardized name of the timezone
  • Abbreviation
  • UTC/GMT offset
  • whether the location observes Daylight Saving Time (DST)

If you’re using our API, you’ll need to upgrade to version 1.3 to see the new results (see documentation). No changes are needed if you’re uploading spreadsheets.

Project Spotlight

Have you ever wondered which Manhattan subway stations have the greatest variety of dining options around them, or which stations have the cleanest restaurants nearby? Geospatial Data Scientist Vanessa Mateus made maps with data from Geocodio and other sources to determine just that. Check out the project here.
