Big tobacco can’t advertise on T.V. Or billboards. Or newspapers. Or magazines. Instead, tobacco companies spend $7.8 billion in the retail environment. The Tobacco Use and Prevention Program of the Montana Department of Public Health developed the Montana Tobacco Retail Mapper story map to show what’s in store for the state’s youth. This interactive map explores retail point-of-sale issues relating to youth, demonstrates the relationship between tobacco retailers and K-12 schools, and exposes the density of tobacco sales in political jurisdictions. The map series story map includes a custom selector to choose and display any of the administrative units and a link to access customized PDF reports. A journal story map is embedded in the master tabbed story map and included additional spatial analysis to assist in understanding data attributes related to tobacco use.
