Improving public sector data visualisation – DataViz

DataViz has launched! This is our project to support and improve public sector data visualisation, commissioned by the Department of Communities and Local Government.

Good data visualisation can help users explore and understand the patterns and trends in data, and also communicate that understanding to others to help them make robust decisions based on the data being presented. This project supports public sector researchers improve the way that they visualise data, by providing good practice examples and case studies, practical and step-by-step guides on how to visualise data, and links to more detailed resources.

The website is , with a gallery of visualisation examples (currently 220 examples) at, and case studies and guides at

We’ll keep updating the project site with examples and case studies over time, so please get in touch with any comments.
