Google Maps for Data Visualization

We are looking into ways to make draw data and ordering statistics more useful to our clients. Perhaps a map? Check out this excellent tutorial on how to get started: I did and was very impressed.

Our proof-of-concept project has the following goals:
  1. a map of the catchment area
    1. marker for client
    2. marker for each draw station
  2. pop-up for each marker
    1. show the absolute activity for that location
    2. show the percentage activity for that location
  3. do the same thing with ordering clinicians instead of draw stations.
We are eager to see if the coolness translates into actual usefulness.
