"Data nerds from government and academia gathered Friday at
Northeastern University to show off the latest version of Weave, an
open-source, web-based platform designed to visualize "any
available data by anyone for any purpose." The software has a lot

Weave is supported by the Open Indicators Consortium, an unusual
partnership of planning agencies and universities who wanted better
tools to inform public policy and community decision-making.
