UUorld has quickly become one of my new favorite toys as of late. What is it? As the site explains it “provides an immersive mapping environment, high-quality data, and critical analysis tools.”

Here is just a simple result of what the map looks like:

Here are some of the highlights:

  1. Supports time series data
  2. Fairly extensive database to pull data from online (apparently of 10,000 different datasets)
  3. Create you own datasets via csv files
  4. Export to video
  5. Export to KML file for use in google maps/earth.
  6. Has the following border sets: Country, US States/Counties, US Zip Codes

There is one caveat that I feel I must add to not give the impression that all is rosy – I bought the application over a week ago and it took several e-mails for them to reply to me and finally get my full download.
