It’s like an app, a separate presentation not embedded into the navigation of the mother website. One single link only – behind the NSI logo – gives the context to the whole statistical content offered by Statistics Italia. I speak of … noi italia.
And it’s beautiful. A mix of static and dynamic (flash, delivered by NCVA) content, text (some call it storytelling) with interactive graphs and maps. .
With the same technology used by noi italia Statistics Sweden just launched its Statistikatlas and also some thematical visualisations or vislets integrated into the website.
Compare i.e. with EUROSTATS Table Graph Maps application which has no texts or storytelling included.
Or with Switzerland’s Stat@las.
Stockholm University, Department of Computer and Systems Sciences, is starting a new research project on Citizen-centric access to statistics. Project manager is Professor Bo Sundgren, former advisor to the Director General of Statistics Sweden.
The project will investigate the possibilities to define an easy-to-use, powerful, and flexible standard interface for communication of statistical data and metadata between the dissemination databases of statistics producers (statistical agencies) and citizen-centric applications, developed by entrepreneurs or by citizens themselves.
