GovInsider and Tableau have created a guide for government officials to use data and visualisations to clearly communicate with citizens and colleagues.

GovInsider interviewed an expert to find out three key steps that officials should always follow when looking to convert their datasets into visualisations that are easy to grasp.

Governments can “create interactive data stories for people like you and me who don’t have a degree in data science, but still want to know what’s going on,” said Ben Jones, Director of Outreach Programmes at Tableau.

This guide will help officials create clear, crisp and most importantly, accurate visualisations and stories. When done right, these are powerful tools to get people to ask new questions or understand complex issues.
