Mapping TIGER Stimulus Grants with Simile

19 02 2010

Today the U.S. Department of Transportation announced the cities that would be awarded with Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Grants.  This seemed like a great opportunity to apply some visualization tools to a new data set.  The data was manually pulled out of the official PDF announcing the TIGER Grants and put into a Google Spreadsheet.  Then it was quick to together a SIMILE Exhibit that pointed to the data.

You can find the resulting map and table at Blldzr.

I create a similar TIGER map using Tableau Public.

If you are running your own WordPress blog, you can use our datapress extension to put simile exhibits right in the blog. You can see examples at http://projects.csail.mit.edu/datapress/demosite/ and find out about the extension at http://projects.csail.mit.edu/datapress/
