Using the Data Export Tool

The Data Export tool in ENVISION can be used to download data from one of your licensed datasets, for a chosen level of geography that falls within a single larger geography. This can be used for standard geography or custom geography.

For example, you could choose a few demographic variables for all of the Forward Sortation Areas or ZIP codes that fall within a Census Subdivision or County.

The process is almost identical to the one above, except that instead of choosing from a set list for the Geographic Detail Level, you have the option to choose from areas that you have created. These can include drive times, radii, and custom shapes.
