Data Visualization

Project Description

PNAMP solicits needs and tasks from their steering committee to determine what can we do to help you. Data Visualization was identified as a need, but data access, discovery, and display varies by data types to display, at multiple scales, and must be targeted to audience. People have expressed interest in a dashboard, or set of tools for an agency or region to report information to enable secondary analysis, for example, and we need to identify the audience(s).

There has been much previous discussion, and now, we are interested in hearing current issues. Though many people have been working with data visualization and there has been some discussion for some time, on March 12, 2018 a scoping meeting was held to assess interest and gather peoples’ ideas for a PNAMP work group. The work group will provide opportunity for organizations to learn from each other and share lessons learned as we develop attractive data visualization tools with accessible data for multiple audiences. There are additional resources and literature here:
