||Be a part of the future ABS|
The Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) ingenious use of ABS βetaWorksTM continues to go from strength to strength, having been named a finalist in the 2011 “Excellence in eGovernment” Awards for its leading-edge Government 2.0 work.
A team of dedicated forward thinking web designers launched ABS βetaWorksTM in 2009, creating an open invitation to the Australian community to assist the ABS with identifying, prioritising and developing fresh web design concepts and enhancements for the ABS website.
It generates keen discussion and offers opportunities for input into potential innovations for the ABS website, providing the ABS with vital intelligence on customer requirements for the online communication of statistics. Integration with Twitter and Facebook makes sharing concepts with others a simple button click away.
Examples include a CPI Kaleidoscope, data visualisation trends, ABS product level search, animated Gifs and a statistical snapshot dashboard.
With community input, we'll be releasing an iPhone app in the first quarter of 2012, creating easy access to key statistics.
