This guide is intended to get you started with our Open data portal. It includes tutorials, videos and links for more information to help you learn and apply the tools for exploring and interacting with our data. So go ahead, indulge in our data!
Filtering provides a means for users to select what data is displayed by setting conditions. This is done to reduce the amount of information in a large database or table of data to just the part that the user wants to see. For example, in a dataset containing information about a general population the user can choose to filter by gender or age group. Multiple filters can be applied.
Data Lens is the beginning of the next revolution in open data. The new open data experience is designed to get your open data to everyday users with a reimagined data consumption experience that is visually, engaging, and intuitive. It is a dynamic, interactive, visual filtering experience, backed by data science that enables users to more easily understand the insights behind your data.
If a dataset has geospatial information, i.e. location information including latitude and longitude, then it can be displayed on a map. Map options include point, boundary and heat maps. Multiple datasets can be overlaid on a single map.
Charts provide a means of displaying data graphically in order to make it easier to understand. Various types of charts can be created from a dataset including bar charts, column charts, pie charts, line graphs, bubble maps and tree maps.
