Open data – detailed, freely available information – opens the way to many kinds of projects. Visualisations and analytics add value to it for use or resale. Public and community sector organisations, academics, governments and researchers can discover trends and needs. The possibilities are as varied as the data
The IC has been working with one of Australia's major art institutions, the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA), to envision and execute a digital transformation project. In an initial discovery phase, we collaborated with our colleagues Suzanne Boccalatte and Martin Ford at Boccalatte to uncover and envision what this change might mean.
The Interaction Consortium is excited to announce the launch of Adrift, a science visualisation project that enables citizens to map the ocean and help ocean scientists better understand the experiences of marine microbes.
The Interaction Consortium recently undertook a large and complex data migration – involving more than 10,000 pages – during the site rebuild for the Australian Museum. We outline the best practice principles we applied to the Australian Museum website migration, which we use for all the large data migrations we undertake. We also go into detail about specific approaches we use involving Django and Wagtail.
The IC is thrilled to announce the launch of the new website for the Australian Museum, and to congratulate the Australian Museum (AM) team on this site winning the 2019 Museums Australasia Multimedia & Publication Design Awards (MAPDA) Institution Website level B award.
A museum website contains a vast amount of detailed information, from previews of collections and exhibits, to visitor guides, research and donor lists. Information architecture provides the means to structure this huge array of content in a logical fashion, making it a vital part of museum website design that will ensure users find everything they are looking for without a clunky or overwhelming site design.
Many websites today are created with drag-and-drop platforms such as WordPress and Joomla, but there are advantages to using a coded approach with tools like Django. Python is one of the most popular programming languages today, and Django is a tool used by Python developers to facilitate the web development process. Read on to learn how Django helps developers create fully customisable websites...
The primary process for lean startups is the Build-Measure-Learn cycle. This process has been the key for many lean startups to develop lasting success. Startups carry out the cycle quickly and thoroughly to refine the idea for a product into something actual customers desire.
Researcher Simon Wardley derived the Pioneer, Settler, Town Planner (PST) concept from Robert Cringely's Accidental Empires as an organisational model for how to support repeated, long-term innovation. It transforms traditional organizational structures into cell-based organizational structures.
Geneticist turned CEO Simon Wardley uses his copious research skills to craft better ways his company can strategize and develop. One of his favorite methods of tracking current processes and forecasting their development can help your startup, too. His take on value chain mapping turns a simple flowchart creation into a tool for organizational learning and change, as well as a strategic methodology tool.
