News, Updates & Tips

Exploration Canvas Available on data.iowa.gov

Socrata Support

The Exploration Canvas is a brand new platform surface for data exploration, data shaping, and derived view creation. It has been available within the internal portal for a while now, but will now be available on the public portal as well. It is still in beta. While you are able to use the canvas, it is still undergoing active development to add more features and functionalities.

New Tables in Stories

Socrata Support

You can now create a table visualization providing complete control over what columns and data are available in your Stories. This new table visualization will allow users to look at your data differently through the use of table hierarchies. With a more interactive view, users can better understand the data and derive insight from it, without changing the underlying data!
