Geoanalytics Platform

Overview Visualizations of geographically-referenced data, such as measures of disease occurrence across the country or atmospheric data around the globe, can be immensely useful. But developing applications using such data sets can be challenging. There is no standard format or cataloging system for geo-referenced data, and once the data sets are found and formatted, they […]
