Epic Systems together with Beemode (www.beemode.com) have developed a Data Visualisation software "Trend Compass" almost ready to be released soon. It does the same functions as Gapminder which you can view at :

- www.gapminder.org

We are looking to promote that software in various sectors. It is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated way. It could be used in Education, analysis, research, decision making, presentation,etc.

Here is one link for part of what we did with the Egyptian Government :

Here is another link for a project we did with Princeton University on US unemployment :


I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas are there.

In a few days you can test the software by uploading data on our website and getting the corresponding Flash charts. This is for a limited number of users.
