Tendr: Koncepce vizualizace dat – podpora pro vývoj a výrobu
Zadavatel: European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound), Dublin – Irsko
Kontrakt na 4 roky / budget €200.000
Background: The choice to invest in data visualisation is built on the fact that Eurofound produces a wide range of high-quality survey and other data which is critical for the work it carries out and the information it provides. It is also driven by opportunities the discipline offers, but also by feedback from stakeholders. Eurofound has seen extremely high levels of take-up with stakeholders from limited pilots with visually accessible data. Eurofound’s research has shown that effective data visualisation succeeds in explaining data in ways target audiences can understand, often combining qualitative and quantitative information. Consistently branding the data outputs has also been revealed as a key issue. Consistency with Eurofound’s data visualisation style guide is a key element in this context. Making better use of data visualisation will require changes to Eurofound’s production capacity and to the formats in which data are disseminated. To help it deliver on this ambition, Eurofound invites proposals for the provision of data visualisation concept development and production support services.
Within the limitations described above, the areas of operations included in this contract are: • Data visualisation/information design product development • Data visualisation/information design production support
Data visualisation and information design are defined in different ways, and sometimes used interchangeably. In the context of this contract, Eurofound defines the disciplines as follows:
– Data visualisation is the practice of representation of data and other information in a graphical manner. A chart is a typical data visualisation product. – Information design is the practice of presenting information, often relying on a visual representation of, for instance, complex concepts or relationships between elements, in order to increase understanding. An infographic is a typical information design product.
It should be noted that products developed and produced in the context of this contract will often combine aspects of both disciplines. For instance, an infographic can contain a number of charts. A strict separation between both is therefore not made.
Product development is the creation of (concepts for) communication products. This can involve modification of an existing product or its presentation, or creation of an entirely new product that satisfies a business requirement.
Supporting the production process involves providing a contribution to the actual creation of products: based on input from Eurofound and according to templates, guidelines or a predefined format, produce the communication outputs that will be used in Eurofound’s dissemination and promotion efforts.
