Interactions: Democratizing Open Energy Data for Public Discourse using Visualization

Interactions: Democratizing Open Energy Data for Public Discourse using Visualization

Abstract

For this demo, we will show two interactive visualizations: Energy Futures and Pipeline Incidents. We de-signed and developed these visualizations as part of an open data initiative that aims to create interactive data visualizations to help make Canada's energy data publicly accessible, transparent, and understandable. This work was conducted in collaboration with the National Energy Board of Canada (NEB) and a visualization soft-ware development company, VizworX.
