DataAppeal is a recently launched web-based visualization application which enables users to produce three- and four-dimensional data maps and animations. It is based on concepts emerging from the 2010 book "The Exposed City: Mapping the Urban Invisibles" by Dr Nadia Amoroso who is the site's founder.
