Submission + - Agencies Use Beta Open Source Project For Public Dataviz

cweditor writes: Several public agencies are using the beta open-source project Weave to put data visualization and analysis into the hands of planners, community activitists and other citizens. Metro Boston's DataCommon rolled out last month, allowing users to build dataviz dashboards where mousing over one visualization module also highlights or slices data in others. Portals in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Arizona, among other places, are under development. More Weave refinements are on the way, says the project head, including real-time collaboration and connecting maps with collections of documents (whether or not they've been geocoded).
