Do you ever wish your reports, studies, outreach materials, or presentations had better visual appeal and data clarity – but you just don’t have the time or expertise to make the enhancements you’d like to see? If you answered yes, then Ottawa County’s Planning and Performance Improvement Department is here to help!

The Department’s experienced staff is available to assist local units of government, non-profit agencies, and county departments with transforming their programmatic and organizational/administrative data into highly effective visualizations. Enhanced Data Visualizations can help you and your stakeholders to:

  • identify patterns in your data
  • communicate your information clearly
  • engage with your audience

Check out these two sample graphs. They both use the same data, but one is obviously clearer.
