Storing and Visualizing Open Data: II
Back in June last year we posted about a demo site we’d put together to experiment with storing and visualizing open data. Recently several new sites have appeared doing web-based visualization, the most prominent of which are Many Eyes from IBM’s visualization research department and swivel.
In both cases it appears that the code isn’t open though the data you upload is (though in neither case does there seem to be any explicit licensing). Both sites also have a very limited approach to managing the data (no data versioning, no packaging etc etc) with the emphasis being on the nice visualization tools (and snappy photos from flickr).
