Second iteration site includes higher education data and new mapping + comparison tools
The Federal Education Budget Project at New America Foundation just relaunched its open data site EdBudgetProject.org, adding new mapping and comparison tools for more than 65 indicators about the 14,000 public school districts in the United States and an entire new section monitoring 7,500 higher education institutions.
The site features fast auto-complete search that allows you to quickly find any school district or higher eduction institution right from the homepage. Each of the two datasets includes state rankings, showing in a glance how states compare. The maps on the site have also been enhanced with chlorophleth displays, improved interactions, and more appealing base maps.

The new higher education dataset includes information about federal grants and loans (like as Pell Grants and Work-Study), graduation rates, and tuition and fees. This information is available for both individual institutions and in aggregate at the state level.
