Recently, the field of data visualization has seen an increase in the development of high impact, dynamic alternative data tools that support new ways of seeing relationships in data and new ways of communicating complex relationships clearly to a wide audience. There are new products, both proprietary and public domain, that enable users to display information; many of these applications are internet-based. Leaders in this field include the New York Times, IBM, the Stanford Visualization Group, the Knight Digital Media Center at the University of California Berkeley, and Google's data visualization products such as Google Earth, Maps, Fusion Tables and Charts tools.
The purpose of this project was to identify and demonstrate data visualization tools and mapping capabilities with potential for analysis and reporting of Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) data, including the potential available through the use of ZIP codes.
