Brazilian state Open data visualization tool – DataViva

The Brazilian state Minas Gerais has launched a new data visualization tool called DataViva, which is meant to help government officials, the private sector and Brazilian citizens understand big data. Although it is the product of a state government, DataViva covers the formal economy of all of Brazil. According to the a video introduction to DataViva, the tool contains more than 100 million interactive visualizations. (Ironically, a video is touted,however, the youtube video is private and not viewable at this time!)

The visualizations are divided into eight different apps. These include a “Tree Map,” a “Geo Map,” “Network,” “Scatter,” and “Occugrid.” Some of these are as general as they sound, and others have a more specific purpose.
