182 School Districts. 1623 Schools. 150,000 data points. 1 Google Map.

Brian Timoney has created a functional Google Map to display standardized test scores for 1623 public schools in Colorado. It allows the map user to make quick visual comparisons between schools as well as getting 3 year drill-down information by clicking on any given school. Brian has this to say about the Google Maps integration:

"Standardized testing is a high-profile issue in the state and it is our hope that presenting this bulky dataset in this intuitive format will enrich the public debate."
