Since the last update here, we successfully launched alongside the Global Humanitarian Overview at a high-level event in Geneva, most 2019 humanitarian response plans have InSight pages available to the public, and a slew of new features have been added. So while NASA’s Mars InSight mission probes the surface of the red planet, its namesake Humanitarian InSight continues to forge ahead back on Earth.
The map and tables on the homepage link to all the pages on InSight for each response plan – simply click a response plan’s name to view a set of pages for that plan. Each page can be downloaded as a print-friendly PDF, and each page element can be downloaded as an image, for use in other reporting. We’re also progressively adding formatted Excel downloads for analysis.
For some initial examples, see the tables on the homepage or the cluster tables on plan pages. Excel downloads of indicator tables and mapped data are coming soon. We’ve also substantially improved our spot-style maps for caseloads and indicators, by adding location search and pcodes.
In addition to these incremental improvements to our existing maps, we'll soon be releasing heatmaps to display operational presence for selected countries using project-based costing. This will be our first foray into Who does What Where (3W) reporting, and we're very excited about it. Expect to start seeing operational presence maps on selected plan pages soon.
We haven't just been working on maps and improving existing features though - we also have some totally new features in the works, including project and organization tables and an entirely new logged-in user experience built around a My Dashboard feature.
