Center for Applied Research and Environmental Systems (CARES)

CARES, housed at the University of Missouri, was established in 1992. CARES uses the latest technologies in geographic information systems, satellite imagery, environmental modeling, and the internet to compile, analyze and distribute information. In the Map Room, you can easily create customized maps on topics such as poverty, crime, food insecurity, demographics, health insurance and obesity utilizing data sources such as the American Community Survey, 2010 Census, USDA, and the CDC.
