Where is my data? It’s on your hard drive! But, when you consider data you use in your daily work the majority of it is, in some manner, linked to a location – an address, a census tract, a community, a school district area or any number of comparable location-based descriptors. So why do so many of us assess these data without consideration of the spatial context? More importantly, how can we leverage this extra value-added component to enhance our understanding and presentation of data in a visual manner?
