Geographic Statistics Visualization: Web-Based Linked Micromap Plots
May/June 2002 (vol. 4 no. 3)
pp. 90-94

Linked Micromap (LM) plots offer a new template for displaying spatially indexed statistical summaries. This template has four key features: it can

  • Display at least three parallel sequences of panels (micromap, label, and statistical summary) that are linked by position
  • Sort the study units
  • Partition the study units into panels to focus attention on a few units at a time
  • Link the highlighted study units across corresponding panels of the sequences

You can use LM plots to visualize complex data in many areas.1-3 This column extends the existing work by introducing Web-based interactive LM plots, a statistical data visualization system that integrates geographical data manipulation, visualization, interactive statistical graphics, and Web-based Java technologies. The system effectively presents the complex and large-volume sample data of national cancer statistics of the United States.
