UI design for open data

607 views

Published on

Good design can increase the value of open data to the public and industry professionals.

But what is open data and how can it be used? The focus of this talk is using design to aid the release of knowledge from within cultural institutions.

But it isn’t just about museums: I’ll be discussing the challenges of designing for complex UIs in general and how we can use narrative to inform and guide the user through abstract interactions.

UI design for open data

  1. 1. Hollie Lubbock UI design for open data @hollielubbock www.hollielubbock.co.uk
  2. 2. hello @hollielubbock — User experience / designer — Many cultural institutions — Museums, galleries some commercial
  3. 3. Back ground for some projects — data as inspiration — designing the data — helping users see the possibilities of data
  4. 4. What is open data? — free to use — ideally easy to reuse & remix — available in an accessible format — part of the larger semantic web — Tim Berners Lee 5 star system http://opendefinition.org/od/ http://theodi.org/guides/what-open-data
  5. 5. Use in the semantic web The Semantic Web isn’t just about putting data on the web. It is about making links, so that a person or machine can explore the web of data. With linked data, when you have some of it, you can find other, related, data. http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html
  6. 6. How can it be used? £200m possible saving to nhs by switching to a generic drug http://theodi.org/blog/a-new-era-of-data- innovation
  7. 7. £200m possible savings — nhs is the National Health Service — On one single type of medication — Found by analyzing open data — in 8 weeks — many more savings possible Mastodon C (ODI start up) http://theodi.org/blog/a-new-era-of-data- innovation
  8. 8. How can it be used? Invisible Airs, YoHa (ODI data as culture) http://vimeo.com/32030340
  9. 9. How can it be used? Invisible Airs, YoHa (ODI data as culture)
  10. 10. Why visualization is important Data skills will become more important as data plays a larger part in our lives — raw data isn’t easy to interpret — maps, graphs etc. easier to digest
  11. 11. Visualization in history Florence Nightingale: Causes of Mortality infographic from 1858
  12. 12. So how is this working in the cultural sector? — common thesauri being developed (cidoc crm) — sharing collections data — Tate (art gallery) — Victoria & Albert museum (uk design museum) — developing Api’s http://www.cidoc-crm.org http://www.vam.ac.uk/api/qb/ https://github.com/tategallery/collection

  14. 14. What happens when museums get together and share?
  15. 15. Researchspace — prototype — tool for academics to collaborate — cross collections searching — common thesauri / taxonomy — RDF triple store at the heart http://www.researchspace.org/
  16. 16. How would we ideally like to search? — search based on sentence structure
  17. 17. Visualization challenges — defining the search term (freebase)

  30. 30. Navigation — reflected organisational structure — not helpful for users — is there a better way?
  31. 31. Using open data as an enhancement — based on search — templating on the fly — uses semantic web to draw in relevant topics from external sites — exposed thesauri http://www.vam.ac.uk/ http://www.othermedia.com/data/files/ othermedia-vawebsite-qa-5.pdf
