Main Features of Noi Italia “Noi Italia – 100 statistics to understand the country we live in” is: • A digital product available on web; • Based on factsheets (about 120) grouped in 19 thematic sectors. Each factsheet is realised following the 5Ws and one H principle in order to make up a story • Atool that allow usersto visualize dynamic graphs linked to the text. • Available in English version from the website . 4

  5. Selection of contents The indicators have been selected: • In order to provide a general framework for understanding the different economic, social, demographic and environmental aspects of Italy; • in view of the main targets defined in Europe 2020 strategy (former Lisbon strategy), to understand where Italy and the others European country are positioned about it. • considering the Community Support Framework (CSF), in order to analyse a development pathway and to reduce social hardship for the Italian southern regions. 5

  6. Multimedial Dissemination (1) • Results have been achieved through the use of a powerful and innovative data visualisation component (vislet eXplorer), based on widget technologies and on a GeoAnalytics Visualization tool, Statistics eXplorer(1) • Statistics eXplorer is a web compliant application which enables users: • to explore simultaneously spatial, temporal and multivariate data; • to discover interesting relationships; • to share their incremental discoveries with other people; • the dynamic object (vislet) has been integrated in a distributed Web environment (Typo 3). • (1) developed by NComVA AB (Norrköping Communicative Visual Analytics) a spin-off company from the Norrköping Visualization Centre at Linkoping University 6
