Spatial Data Visualization Tools Briefing Paper - DataShare

The JISC funded DataShare project has just published the second part of the briefing paper Data Visualization Tools: Spatial Data in a Web 2.0 Environment and Beyond by Stuart Macdonald. The paper describes an incredible collection of spatial mash-up and geo-browser tools and shows examples of academic research use of some of these technologies.


The vision proposed is that "by opening up their code to repository developers (e.g. through APIs) numeric and spatial data tools could be utilised further within this environment to engage potential depositors, to enhance output, and to provide analysis and visualisations as part of ‘value-added’ functionality."

This is a must read for anyone interested in Geo Web or Geo 2.0!
