Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data
Drupal's built-in data presentation tools offer several ways for web designers to clearly and attractively package their data.

Tom also shows how a data-driven web site can improve its interactivity by using geographic data to connect real-world addresses to maps. Exercise files accompany the course on Lynda.com.
