This article demonstrates opportunities afforded by the database file format of many U.S. Bureau of the Census CD-ROMs. It specifically illustrates what can be achieved by modifying and linking files extracted from these CD-ROMs, and then by adding these files as thematic map layers. The article concludes by suggesting ways in which the documents specialist can network these files and maps throughout the local community.
