Visualise Danish Datasets on Google Maps


eXplorer is a new tool developed by Linköping University to help visualise Danish data sets. The tool is very similar to Google Labs' Public Data Explorer in that it allows the use to visualise data with Google Maps and view a time-line animation of the data.

It is possible to visualise a number of economic datasets with eXplorer. Once you have selected a dataset from the right-hand sidebar you can view the data on a Google Map and in a number of chart formats.

If you press the play button below the chart you can view an animation of the data over time. The data is also displayed on the map with a choropleth layer. It is possible to click on any of the shaded areas on the map to see the corresponding data highlighted on the chart.
