InstantAtlas is an inexpensive, powerful data visualization and presentation tool. It enhances the value of educational performance or attainment data by making national, state, district and individual school patterns easy to see and explore.


InstantAtlas is well-established around the world for the presentation of demographic, socio-economic, health, education and other community data. More recently, organizations are using InstantAtlas to develop interactive data presentations and dashboards dedicated to the needs of educational planners and policy makers. We have picked out a few live examples below, with focus on the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States. With InstantAtlas, users can access your data easily and quickly on many relevant themes such as school age demographics, or for monitoring educational performance and attainment scores by area or by school. Pre-school preparedness data (reading and numeracy skill levels) can be mapped to identify areas or neighborhoods needing priority attention. In some communities ensuring equal opportunity for all and the social inclusion of minorities or children with special needs are priorities. These issues can be best visualized though a combination of carefully configured maps, graphs and tables to provoke thoughtful discussion. Maps can be used to monitor progress in the introduction of a new curriculum or examination system. More specific mapping tasks can include tracking which schools offer which learning facilities or course options (see Bremen Language Atlas below).


Simple to implement


You can take data from a spreadsheet, add your boundary file, publish an InstantAtlas stand-alone dynamic report and place it on your web site, or intranet. Typically, this can all be done in less than a day. The software itself is intuitive: You do not need any special technical knowledge or training. And for preparing your data, you use familiar tools. InstantAtlas comes with ready-to-use templates that can be customized with the Designer module. You only buy the templates that you need to present your data. Output your data in HTML5 or Adobe Flash formats for maximum accessibility.
