The efforts toward linking of Federal government agencies' statistical data through common geospatial referencing are discussed. Research is focused on human-centered design and implementation of component-based tools that help agency analysts to identify errors, anomalies, clusters and possible multivariate relationships. Specific aim in the digital government research has been to develop and assess components that support highly interactive visual data analysis. Effective data analysis components have been developed integrating them into applications to assess usefulness and usability of those applications.
