Data Access Tools

Extract Builder

The Extract Builder allows users to browse the entire IPUMS Terra data collection, access rich metadata describing the data, select variables and datasets from any of the three data structures, and combine them into a single integrated dataset in the data format that best meets the needs of their analysis. These extracts may then be further analyzed with statistical packages or a Geographic Information System.

TerraClip

TerraClip allows users to obtain country-level subsets of selected global raster datasets. Users may preview and download data, either as an image or as georeferenced data for use in a GIS.

TerraScope

TerraScope supports exploratory spatial data visualization. It enables users to view the availability of variables across time and space, create choropleth maps of area-level data, and visualize raster datasets.
