I have used various data visualization tools over the years and knew that pre-existing tools would be much more robust than anything I could create.
What it does
Allows large quantities of various data to be visualized using Metabase and shared to the public via couchCMS
How I built it
Mostly straight forward with some slight customization of couchCMS
Challenges I ran into
Massaging .csv files to import into mySQL, displaying of iframes in couchCMS
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Getting all the components to "talk", having an idea and seeing it through to completion
What I learned
This was my first experience with Google Cloud Platform for hosting and I was very impressed
What's next for State of Hawaii Executive Branch IT Visualization
Waiting to be notified of my victory... :) There are some improvements that could be made, specifically increasing security and connecting directly to a data source rather than using .csv files.
