Texas Metro Observatory

The Texas Metro Observatory (TMO) is a communication and data platform dedicated to sharing information and ideas about Texas’s communities, understanding common problems related to urbanization processes in these communities, and developing solutions across the state’s metropolitan areas. The Observatory serves as a repository for economic, environmental, health, demographic, and governmental information for the state’s metropolitan regions. Our platform allows researchers, community members, nonprofit organizations, public sector agencies, policymakers, and the business community to access the most complete metropolitan-scaled data for the state; it also includes useful data interpretation and analysis such as data visualizations, infographics, and tools that will help tell the story of the places where Texans live.
