Advanced data mining and visualization techniques can be used to present complex data sets in ways that are relevant to answering policy questions. For science and technology policymakers, key opportunities in visualizations are to identify emerging science opportunities and policy interventions to exploit them, to visualize the economic and other policy outcomes from government-supported research, and to evaluate differential impacts of policy interventions. The presentation will examine key examples of policy-relevant visualizations and connect them to policy outcomes.
