AMPLIFYING OUTREACH: BEYOND WEB MAPS

We work closely with clients to unlock the value of their data. Far from simply presenting data on maps, we build custom data visualization interfaces from the ground up that present entirely original perspectives on complex datasets. Employing the web browser as our core platform, we explore data through a host of techniques, from linking charts with maps to animating data over time and space. Through this bottom-up approach, we create unique visualizations that can reveal new insights and engage audiences.
