Dashboards are a great way of accessing a large number of statistics from many different areas. They're visually pleasing, can be interactive and useful as a quick one-stop-shop for information. We are trailing a concept on BetaWorks called 'ABS Statistical Snapshot' based on the Key Economic Indicators page on the ABS Website.
Data Visualisation is an innovative means of communicating information simply. This Dashboard is designed so users are able to access quick charts and figures of particular interest rather than jump through multiple publications to access the data they are interested in.
This is only a conceptual idea, let us know your thoughts on the prototype.
