We recently launched our first public-facing geospatial map, the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) Beneficiaries and Benefits by State 2014. The OASDI map provides a quick distribution of Social Security beneficiaries and benefit dollars by state, visualizing complex data and rendering it in a way that is easy to understand. This first map lays the groundwork for our publishing other public maps. The public can view this map on our Open Government Map Gallery at http://www.ssa.gov/open/geospatial.html, and GeoPlatform.gov, a Federal platform to display and promote Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications and geospatial datasets that are also part of Data.gov. To access our Open Government Map Gallery, please visit: http://www.ssa.gov/open/geospatial.html. If you have feedback about our data, or have ideas about what kind of maps would be useful to you, let us at our Open Data Customer Feedback Process: http://ssa-ideas.ideascale.com/.
