NITRD "NSF Dashboard" Data Exploration and Prototype Visualizations

DRAFT

Background

In January 2011 the TWC LODG team spent a day showing a team from NITRD, led by George Strawn, how to "promote" some of their NSF funding data to RDF using TWC's csv2rdf4lod automation so that it could be integrated with other existing datasets. During their visit, we demonstrated conversion of both row-based and 4-ary statistical NSF data, available at , which requires cell-based conversion. By the end of the day we were able to demonstrate simple visualizations using the data they brought with them, which are also available here http://www.nitrd.gov/open. A detailed account of how we applied our conversion automation to the 4-ary conversion problem is available here http://bit.ly/feSvBG

TWC-created Demos (informative)

The TWC team built three demos for NITRD:

NITRD NSF Dashboard Demos

The NITRD team has subsequently built a Flash-based interactive dashboard based on this data http://itdashboard.nitrd.gov.

The data sources driving the NITRD Dashboard are the Agency NITRD Budget Cross Cuts as reported in the NITRD Supplement to the President’s Budget. All data sources are available for download at http://www.nitrd.gov/open
