The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) developed an interactive mapping
tool that shows where people in Southeast Michigan commute to and from. Best viewed in
Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
New on SEMCOG's website: Interactive map shows commuting patterns for Southeast
Travel to work - showing the connections between the business and labor markets - is one
of the defining factors of a regional economy. Travel-to-work data in Southeast Michigan
suggests that the SEMCOG region is connected by commuting flows that tie housing markets
and job centers across the region into one very strong, cohesive inter-reliant region.
Using data from the Census Transportation Planning Package, Commuting Patterns in
SEMCOG developed an interactive mapping tool that shows where people in Southeast Michigan
commute to and from. Just click on a community and explore. Results will show the number
of workers who live and work in the selected community as well as the number of workers
who commute to the selected community along with the community where they commute from in
a bar chart. The map also colors in the commuting communities.
This interactive mapping tool, found at http://semcog.org/mapping/commute_map/index.html
is best viewed in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Take a look and let us know what you
