U.S. Department of Education Launches New Early Learning Map on DATA.ED.GOV

4/12/12

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has launched a new early learning mapping site on http://data.ed.gov so the interested individuals can use tools to look at discretionary ED grant programs that focus on or include early learning.

Data.ed.gov is a website developed by the Department of Education to share data about its grant programs and is part of the Obama Administration’s Open Government Initiative. ED will use data.ed.gov to publish data sets about its grant programs and performance and other data that it collects on an ongoing basis.

Data.ed.gov builds on the approach of data.gov by including tools that allow users to visualize the data. Users can enter terms into the “Search” field to find applications that match the specified terms, select filters to narrow the list of applicants to a specific group of interest, and zoom in on different areas of the map. By clicking on the dots on the map, users can see which programs are located in a state, city or other geographic area.

Please visit http://data.ed.gov to learn more.
