The Ethics Commission has launched a page on its website to feature its data tools. The new Data Hub provides centralized access to the data tools in one easy-to-find webpage at ethics.lacity.org/data/hub.
The Data Hub’s landing page features the three most recent tools. Access to subject-specific tools is also provided through tabs for campaigns, contracts, ethics, and lobbying. Each tab displays information cards about each data tool that is available, including brief descriptions and links.
There are currently 28 data tools, including data search engines, data visualization dashboards, and interactive data tables. Each tool provides a different way of displaying data. For example, some tools can be used to visualize trends, others to narrow down data, and yet others to find and download data, reports, and communications.
All of the data tools are methodically designed to be human-centered, community-driven, and user-led. They enable users to lead their own search experiences by changing viewpoints and filters. The Ethics Commission uses industry standards for design, accessibility, and responsiveness. New tools and updates to existing tools are commonly designed based on user feedback from the Ethics Commission’s 19 communities and from the public.
