Project Steel Beta
In summer 2008, the Spatial History Lab began developing this web-based visualization tool for spatio-temporal data. This effort combines the robust local data management capacities of geographic databases with the rich, distributed, interactive realm of the web. The tool intends to provide support for both exploratory and presentational visualization. Users can combine data from different databases in a common geographic framework and projection, modify symbolization to examine attribute patterns, manipulate a timeline to explore temporal trends, and examine linked data visualizations to examine relationships between variables.
