The previous month I was busy with experimenting a dashboard which had choropleth/thematic maps, charts, interactivity, also dynamic data reading. Here is what I came up with. This one is a HTML5 based dashboard. Looks like a Flex application isn’t it? The map is of United States and the demographic data are just demo data although they are read from XML files. What’s good is that this application can scale, in the sense that the data can be fed to it by services running on remote servers and the map can display that. Also the data distribution has two categories a) Equal Distribution b) Quantiles method. Had to look up the statistic book again for these two. Play with the application and let me know if you like it.
The application is meant for computer browsers that support HTML5 Canvas and Inline SVG. You can best view it in Chrome, FF and Safari.

(The demo link has slight problems at the moment. I am fixing this right now. But you can view the source code in the browser and download it if needed.)
Issue: I am noticing some issues with the select lists on the top. The Equal Intervals/Quantiles select list some times does not make any changes in the map. I will look into this, but you might want to test it.
