The Interactive Data Network (IDN) provides support, training and consultancy in the development of interactive data visualisations of research data at Oxford University, provided by Research Support Services in IT Services.
We currently provide support in creating interactive visualisations using a variety of "point & click" and scripting tools, contact us for support in thinking about and presenting your research through web-based visualisations via firstname.lastname@example.org
University of Oxford has a subscription to shinyapps.io where researchers may host their interactive data visualisations built using R and Shiny. To learn more about this read the IDN Shinyapps.io Guide, or email email@example.com.
We provide the following support in producing visualisations for shinyapps.io:
- Showcase of examples of visualisations we've built
- Overview of what R, htmlwidgets and Shiny are useful for
- Advice on developing interactive visualisations with htmlwidgets
- Template Shiny apps for common visualisation requirements
The visualisation embedded here is the result of Case Study with the Oxford Internet Institute to build an interactive dashboard for the Online Labour Index project which seeks to provide the first economic indicator for the online gig economy. This is hosted on the IDN shinyapps.io account.
