[Srijan Wednesday Webinar] Leveraging the OGD Platform and Visualization Engine


Published on

Data is one of the most valuable resources of modern digitized governance, but raw data alone can not provide the decision makers valuable insights. To turn the numbers into knowledge, we need to separate noise from the data. We also need to choose the right way to present the data, so that it’s easily interpreted.
There Open Government Data Platform India makes a lot of valuable open government datasets available from different sectors. And you are free to leverage these for creating visualizations and info-graphics using the in-house visualization engine.

Watch the webinar and learn how the OGD platform can help you create data-driven products and solutions.

Key Takeaways:
- Understand the importance of visualizations to showcase valuable insights
- Learn how to use open government data in decision making
- Know how to choose your format of visualization according to the data
- Learn how to create and share maps and charts using the Data Visualization Engine of the OGD Platform

Features • D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation. • D3 allows to bind arbitrary data to a Document Object Model (DOM), and then apply data-driven transformations to the document. For example, you can use D3 to generate an HTML table from an array of numbers. Or, use the same data to create an interactive SVG bar chart with smooth transitions and interaction.
