What is this about?

This application provides a quick and easy way to access the statistical figures included in the many datasets provided by data.fingal.ie. Currently statistics are scattered in different datasets making it difficult to perform tasks like:

  1. quickly find a number when needed (e.g. try searching for"howth primary schools")
  2. get all statistics about a particular area of interest (e.g. try searching for "howth")
  3. get all statistics related to a particualr topic (e.g. try searching for "schools")
  4. contrast a number of statistics about different areas (e.g. try searching for "howth deprivation Kilsallaghan" and check the grouping options)

To see more examples: search for "Howth 2008" to see only statistics that were measured in 2008. Try also "childcare Blanchardstown Roselawn howth" and "schools howth rush Kilsallaghan" and play with the grouping options.

 

Each number is linked back to the dataset it comes from so that it can be checked and the original CSV file can be directly downloaded

 

Ubiquitous access

The search service is available in three ways:

  1. A stand-alone search application that searches both for facts(numbers) and datasets (try it)
  2. A lightweight version ideal for mobile browsing (try it) and embedding in existing websites (see example)
  3. As a service that returns results encoded in JSON so that other developers can re-purpose the data or visualize it in different ways (see example of search for answers or datasets)

Fingal Day Tripper

Submitted by David McNamara last modified Thu, 22 Mar 2012 11:39:37 GMT.

It is common for families to take a day trip on the weekend to local attractions such as beaches, parks, castles and other amenities. This can, however, be a stressful time for the parents, due to having to organise the children, lunches, equipment, etc. A further headache is having to organise driving directions for the day, especially if the trip is to a new location.
