Live online web application to monitor near real-time data and provide alerts and notifications to assist with critical decision making.
Why use a dashboard?
Dashboards are a useful way of displaying crucial information in an easy to access format. Whilst dashboards are traditionally thought of as a business tool, they are used in everyday life to display information that we need to know. Examples of dashboards are in transport vehicles. Cars, boats and aeroplanes all display highly critical information in view of the driver, skipper or pilot. Think of a car dashboard. A car dashboard can display a significant amount of information including:

Charts, diagrams and graphs have been used to present statistical data and results for centuries. The purpose is to present a finding or a summary of information in a manner where it can be readily understood.

Data is often presented in tables, but these have long been recognised as a particularly poor means of communication. In 1786 the English economist William Playfair wrote

Alternative Water Sources
The Problem: How can alternative water sources help reduce the need for (potable) drinkable water in new developments?
The Data Analysis Australia Approach: To develop a tool to assist developers in profiling water use and to specify how some of this demand is to be met by alternative water sources.
The Result: A spreadsheet model with an easy to use interface that summarises water use and supply for a new development.
