The focus of this month’s Ezine is Data Visualisation available on NINIS.
Infographics are a visual representation of the data intended to highlight key data quickly and clearly (Wikipedia).
Thematic Maps show data for administrative and statistical boundaries on a map by colouring these regions using sequential colours. Darker colours indicate a higher percentage or number.
Point Maps show data on a map for specific points using grid references.
Tree Maps display the data as a set of nested rectangles with each rectangle’s area proportionate to the data it represents.
Population Pyramids show the age and sex distribution of the population. It allows you to easily see the number of people of each age living in an area.
Word Clouds are a way of representing text data visually.
NINIS hosts a range of data visualisations including Infographics, Thematic Maps, Point Maps, Tree Maps, Population Pyramids, Word Clouds. These can be found under the Interactive Content menu on NINIS.
A new logo has been added to the Interactive Content page for infographics and word clouds as shown below.
