Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Tapestry Segmentation


The Tapestry Segmentation from ESRI divides the US population into 67 different “market segments” - that is, groups of people who make about the same amount of money, live similar lifestyles, and have common preferences. This enormously rich set of data can be used to better understand communities around the country. It is especially useful to businesses who want to target their products and services to those who are most likely to buy them. Students will be successful with this lesson after they are able to review a number of Tapestry Segmentations and make models as to how the information can be used by business leaders to make decisions.
