GeoLytics offers these products in two easy-to-use formats either at the Block level or at the Block Group level and larger geographies. The data has been compressed so that it generally fits on 1 disk and it comes with built-in mapping capabilities, based upon the new Census 2000 boundaries. With a few quick keystrokes you can generate full-blown maps or tables. You can also export the data into a statistical software package, mapping or other software package.
