Recovery at a glance – inside the Map Gallery

Posted in by on November 3, 2010

The Map Gallery provides access to all 15 maps on that display Recipient-reported data, including 12 new maps. These maps make it easy for you to see local data as well as data displayed at a national level.

Brand new to the Map Gallery are a trio of maps depicting Recovery awards not started, in progress and completed.  You can also see maps that compare job training awards versus state and county unemployment rates;  awards for education in relation to the local population under 18; and COPS programs versus population density.

And, now you can find out which states had the most recipients who did not report on their awards – recipients that are considered non-compliant under the Recovery Act – by checking out the Non-Compliers map.

Featured in our Map Gallery is the Lights-On map, designed and created by Edward Tufte, the renowned data visualization expert and a member of the Recovery Board Advisory Panel.  This map gradually lights up to display the distribution of Recovery awards from February, 2009 to September 30, 2010.

Let us know what other maps you’d like to see, we welcome the feedback and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    When I submit the feedback form, it complains that the phone number I entered is in an incorrect format – how about giving us a clue as to what the correct format is! I’ve tried these:

    (123) 456-7890
    123 456 7890
