Snapshot Wisconsin Data Dashboard

Snapshot Wisconsin Data Dashboard

One of many initial tasks at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) was to produce a set of interactive visualizations which displayed highlights of Snapshot Wisconsin metadata and detection statistics. This interactive presentation was developed and launched to volunteers of the project (soft launch) within 7 months of my hire date, and to the public (full launch) within 11 months, which was no small feat.

Feedback was used throughout the development to continuously improve upon the product. Between the soft launch and the full launch, 4 new visualizations were integrated, 5 additional species were added, 2 modal information popups were added, and numerous other improvements were made.

The presentation was built in R using the Shiny package to allow it to be hosted via Shiny (web) servers. Additional highlights to this project included mapping via leaflet, plotting via plotly, and custom behaviors via JavaScript.
