Google's public data is redefining economic visualization.

Google Public Data Labs is going to redefine how we communicate and visualize public economic data.  Take a look at this interactive chart and ask yourself: Why is Whatcom County  in last place?

We look a little bit better if we just compare Bellingham to all Washington State MSAs. Maybe.

Feel free to click the 'Explore Data' link and create your own comparison detailing how vibrant our middle class is in Whatcom County, compared to Yakima County perhaps?

Dear Sir,

I have the pleasure to brief on our Data Visualization software
"Trend Compass".

TC is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated
way by displaying 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size & Bubble color)
instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. It could be used in
analysis, research, presentation etc. In the banking sector, we have
Deutsche Bank New York as our client.

This a link on weather data :

This is a bank link to compare Deposits, Withdrawals and numbers of
Customers for different branches over time ( all in 1 Chart) :

Misc Examples :

This is a project we did with Princeton University on US unemployment :

A 3 minutes video presentation of above by Professor Alan Krueger
Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton
University and currently Chief Economist at the US Treasury using
Trend Compass :

Latest financial links on the Central Bank of Egypt:

I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas
are there.

You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export
EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you
can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.

All the best.
