Enhanced Crash Data Dashboard Design

Abstract: Interactive visualization tools have made it possible for developers to efficiently design dashboards which allow data consumers and analysts to gain a greater variety of insights about their data. Recently introduced design features such as “visualization in tooltip” now allow developers to create mouseover or single-click interactions which replace workflows previously requiring user manipulation of one or more data filters. When correctly applied, these features simplify the user experience and make it possible for users to gain additional insights about their data faster than ever before. This presentation will give an overview of the process used in updating Louisiana’s SHSP Crash Data Dashboard, including a demonstration of how to effectively use Tableau’s “viz in tooltip” feature. Note: although Tableau will be utilized for the presentation, many of the concepts discussed can be implemented using other software as well.
