Welcome to the BestPlaces DataEngineBETA

Our goal is to compile and wrangle the world's data to help you get to the data you need.

Our DataEngine allows you to browse proprietary and publicly available datasets such as our proprietary Climate data and the American Community Survey, the Census Bureau's chief data product.

After you find what you want you can apply filters to the data in order to get just the data you need. Then, you can purchase a subscription and download the data to make graphs, charts, maps, or anything else you can dream up.

These datasets are only the beginning! We will be adding more data periodically. If you have a specific dataset you need, let us know.

BestPlaces Proprietary Data

Climate Normals data include:

  • Temperature
    • Daily High/Low
    • Monthly High/Low
    • Annual High/Low
  • Precipitation (Monthly, Annual)
    • Precipitation Days
    • Total Precipitation
  • Dew Point (Monthly, Annual)
  • Snowfall (Annual)
Our proprietary Climate Data compilation is unique. We offer temperature, dew point, precipitation, and snowfall data for places we actually live, not just for wherever the weather station is located. We accomplish this by using sophisticated computer modeling that takes into account both Climate and Environmental variables.

The ACS program includes 1-year estimates, 3-year esimates, and 5-year estimates. We provide the 5-year estimates data because it is the largest sample size, includes data for all areas, and the data is the most realiable.
