TIGER Mapping Service using public geographic census data

Most map librarians know about the Tiger Mapping Service, but for those of you interested in learning more, check out the U.S. Census Bureau’s Mapping and Cartographic Resources.

TMS is a geographic map service which produces public domain GIF images of map data which is derived from Tiger/Line® data. The primary goal of the service is to provide a public resource for generating high-quality, detailed maps of coverage within the United States and outlying areas, using a public geographic data source.
