<p>Linked Micromap (LM) plots offer a new template for displaying spatially indexed statistical summaries. This template has four key features: it can <ul><li> Display at least three parallel sequences of panels (micromap, label, and statistical summary) that are linked by position</li> <li>Sort the study units</li> <li>Partition the study units into panels to focus attention on a few units at a time</li> <li>Link the highlighted study units across corresponding panels of the sequences</li></ul> </p> <p> 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.</p>
