Georeferencing More Data

Idea#10

Stage: Active

Campaign: Open Government

Policymakers at all levels of government, and the public at large, as well as local and regional offices of state agencies, like to have locality-specific information. Often, aggregated stats about statewide programs or policies will be less interesting to those seeking to use data than "how it effects my County/City/Town."

Appending a georeference data field to publicly-available records as a convention would allow for using a map interface to display data. Map interfaces are engaging, and offer visual analytic capacity that allows users to gain understanding from underlying statistics without having to look at a lot of numbers.
