GovCMS Data Visualisation

Project Info

Project Description


Our team (of four first-time GovHackers) is interested in using opensource tools to work with open data. For this challenge we installed Drupal 8 GovCMS on a free cloud hosting site provided by Microsoft Azure. The DVF (Data Visualisation Framework) module was then installed and tested. The team then explored various features and functions of the DVF to represent numerical data in various graphs and displayed them on the website. Feedback and suggestions were then submitted on the website also.


Data Story


We cleaned the original dataset from (lmip.gov.au) on Occupational Projections, converted into csv format and explored the various graphical options in the Data Visualisation Framework. The size of the dataset is also reduced to a minimum. The aim is not to analyse the data but to explore how numbers are presented using the DVF module.
