I read a message today on the Association of Internet Researchers listserv that mentioned a new software project called Weave from the Institute for Visualization and Perception Research at the University of Massachusettes, Lowell and the Open Indicators Consortium

According to the website, it “a web-based visualization platform designed to enable visualization of any available data by anyone for any purpose” and it “has the ability to integrate, disseminate and visualize data at “nested” levels of geography.”

Not sure when or why I’d use a geo mapping tool, but it thought it might be a good thing to hang on to.
