Using the power of research to inform ICT integration in education

William Murakami-Brundage, Jennifer Bopp, Megan Finney, Joselito Abueg (2011) Visualizing World Bank Indicators through Google Earth, 10th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Social Sciences 2011

The goal of the project is to develop a large visual data resource for Google Earth using major education, gender, and health datasets. With global data increasingly being made public by organizations such as the World Bank, global data modeling has been a significant development in information visualization and geographical information systems. While there is a considerable amount of publicly owned and open-source data sets available, there has been minimal development beyond proof-of-concept ideas. The current research project is to model five major domains of the World Bank’s global datasets.  After the Google Earth models are complete, the resulting KML files will be made available for public use. It is hoped that a greater global awareness will develop by using the World Bank/Google Earth data. Additionally, data development will be easier once the data key is published.
