The Center for Applied Research and Engagement Systems, or CARES, is a small and adventurous group of geographic information specialists, programmers, and data nerds. We love making maps, developing new data visualizations, and helping individuals and organizations figure out ways to do their work better. While many of our current projects are focused on health, over the past three decades we’ve collected, analyzed, and visualized data related to the environment, agriculture, safety, education, and the economy. We appreciate and understand the challenges and opportunities related to data collection and analysis in rural America. We seek to partner with like-minded organizations, build tools, and find data that supports positive population change.
