Hi Everybody,

I was wondering if there's a place somewhere where I can download TIGER 2006 SE files per state rather than per county. I've been researching this dataset for a client and I'm pretty sure he'll want it processed by state...

You probably found this site on google too, but you have to purchase it ($59 usd).

Actually, that's $59 per stat, or $595 for the entire US. Not really what we're looking for.

If we'd end up using TIGER data, it would need to be processed into a different data model anyway, regardless of whether we take the original files or the shapefiles offered by that organisation (or Avenza for that matter)... So given that there is processing necessary, it's best to save $595 and go with the original data...

Yes, it's per state unfortunately.

Just use a download manager to get what you need: http://www2.census.g...er/tiger2006se/

I have the latest tiger data on my computer and would be willing to format these data by state. What format would most users need? Mapinfo? Shapefiles by feature class? Census areas/roads/water/other points?

I would ask about the same price as other retailers ask for a copy of the downloaded tiger data, about $75.00 for the whole US on 2 DVDs. This seems fairly easy using Global Mapper or FWTools.
