6/21/2019 10:16:08https://data.london.gov.uk/blog/city-intelligence-data-design-guidelines/London City Intelligencegovernment2019A first step toward improvement was creating a set of guidelines to help us all understand the basic principles of data visualisation, provide some examples of good practice, working processes and links to tools we can all use.

The guidelines are a “work in progress”, that have evolved through documenting what processes and tools have worked well so far in our work, and we hope will expand further in the future.

As we begin to create more interactive data visualisation applications, built on the expanding Datastore platform, these guidelines will be important to underpin the design of those applications.
