Thematic maps designed by PRC staff have appeared in The Oregonian, Willamette Week, and Metroscape, a bi-annual publication of the Institute for Portland Metropolitan Studies, and other mass media venues. Frequently, the maps that we create are part of a larger project, although we also design and produce "stand-alone" maps depicting demographic and socioeconomic patterns, and atlases (e.g., Beaverton Demographic Profiles, 1995).
