What?

The Mapping Dashboard is an interactive heat-map, coupled with an array of charts. The aim of this prototype is to demonstrate a very hands-on, interactive way to view our geospatially-enabled data. On this version of the product we have a collection of time-series from the 2001, 2006 and 2011 Australian Censuses.

The Dashboard should allow the user to explore relationships between geography, time and data items quickly and easily. Although the data in this version is validated Census data it has not been validated for this purpose and the Dashboard should not be used as the basis for informed decision-making.

Why?

Although the ABS produces a lot of quality geospatially-enabled data, it can be difficult for casual end-users to explore the data in a meaningful fashion. Maps are the most logical way to explain and display geospatial data, and the Dashboard aims to provide a framework on which the user can play. With customisable graphs, legends and geographies, the Dashboard puts the power in the hands of the user.

To be Determined

Please note this concept has been optimised for a 1680 x 1050 screen resolution. Data used in this concept is for demonstration only and should therefore not be used for any serious analysis.
