Work Package 8 was required to develop and maintain a website platform for the exchange and dissemination of project results. This Work Package was led by the University of Manchester.
The EURO-URHIS 2 results website was developed through the University of Manchester and the National Drug Evidence Centre (NDEC), directed by Dr Michael Donmall. NDEC has developed a visualisation tool called ViewIt™. This tool provides a simple way of visualising data using tables, bar and pie charts and via interactive maps allowing detailed comparisons at national and local levels.
The ViewIt™ tool has the ability to show data in a tabular format and each row or column can then visualised using graphs and pie charts. Individual data items within the table can also be selected and these can be cross-tabulated and visualised in a comparison chart. ViewIt™ also uses Google maps with overlays to summarise data at a national level.
The ViewIt™ tool was used to create the EURO-URHIS 2 results website (results.urhis.eu). Examples of the website can be seen below, but please click on the results tab at the top of the page to try it out for yourself.
