Dynamic Graphics for Presenting Statistical Indicators



Dynamic Graphics for Presenting Statistical Indicators

5 - 6 March 2007, ISTAT office - Rome, Italy

In recent years focus has been on the use of indicators in discussions of international forums, such as the OECD World Forum. Several statistical and analytical organisations are increasingly seeing it as important to present statistical indicators on key societal phenomena to a number of different audiences.

The seminar is about the art of making statistical indicators understandable and appealing to modern audiences. Leading-Edge products will be showcased. A review of technical solutions (XML plug-in, Java, SVG, Flash...) will be made and participants will have the opportunity to participate to discussions on how to select, develop and implement dynamic graphics (purpose, strategy, tailored tools or off-the-shelf...)

The purpose of the seminar is to see if good practices can be identified and recommendations can be made, allowing organisations to advance in this important field.
