“Data Cubes are interactive databases that quickly allow users to create tables and graphs using their web browser. These online analytical processing cubes, or OLAP cubes, produce output displayed in a table format with a corresponding graph.” Cubes are similar to, but more dynamic than spreadheets. Cube users can “see many dimensions at once by nesting variables under one another.” The Chronic Disease Infobase Data Cubes “contain many different types of Chronic Disease health indicator information.”
