When analyzing statistical data, one of the most basic and at the same time widely used techniques is analyzing correlations. As shown in previous works, Linked Open Data is a rich resource for discovering such correlations. In this demo, we show how statistical analysis and visualization on maps can be combined to facilitate a deeper understanding of the statistical findings.
