Visual Analysis of Data to Effect Social Change: from data to insight

Weave is a web-based visualization platform designed to enable visualization of any available data by anyone for any purpose. Weave is an application development platform supporting multiple levels of users – novice to advanced – as well as the ability to integrate, analyze, and visualize data at "nested" levels of geography, and to disseminate the results in a web page.

Weave has been developed at the Institute for Visualization and Perception Research (IVPR) of the University of Massachusetts Lowell in partnership with the Open Indicators Consortium, a national collaborative of public and nonprofit organizations working to improve not just access to more and higher quality data but also access to free visual analytics software.

The IVPR is working with numerous small and large organizations in their adopting and using Weave for data analysis, visualization, and forecasting, and in their developing both internal and public Weave-based web sites. Our goals are to especially enable non-profits and other small groups to use Weave to share and disseminate data, visualizations, and stories on their own web pages, in grant writing, and most importantly to help them effect social change
