News, Updates & Tips
Implement a Project Explorer
Through the state data portal, agencies can implement a project explorer to provide your management, the public, or both and easy-to-use dashboard that displays your spending on projects, providing insight into the nature and status of your projects. This explorer allows agencies to categorize and subcategorize projects, provide images and descriptions of each project, start and end dates, budget and actual expenditures, schedule status, and location. If your agency oversees construction projects, this is a must. However, this can be repurposed for other projects too. Check out how the City of Seattle uses the explorer.
Publishing a New Story
State Data Portal Procedure
Citizens, elected officials and agency leadership want useful, valuable content that helps them understand issues we face or progress we are making as a state. Storytelling can help gain insight, impart valuable ideas, and provide context to numbers. This new document walks through the process of creating a story that brings information together from one or more datasets and is always current with the underlying data published on the State Data Portal that it is based on.
Dataset Highlight: BOEE Licenses & Endorsements
