Can you name 500 US cities and towns? What about 300 Canadian municipalities (cities, towns, villages, etc.)? For what you can name, can you picture their flags?
Demo Interactive Education Tool for National Flags
When you look up some flags, you often get a webpage, or list if it were a part of a group or you had searched the group, and links to the place the flag represents. Sometimes, you’ll get a map with some flags, and be able to download a graphic. That lack of consistency was frustrating to me, as was the large lack of information about flag design components and other flags with similar features, for design research and/or inspiration to avoid duplication or find inspiration among variations. So in the winter of 2023, I designed and build interactive online displays that would contain it all, as well as be able to grow and change over time as the information changes. I did this using the Tableau Public platform, and the first result was this demo using national flags as a set.
Canada’s Most Comprehensive, Interactive Public Health Report Card (CCHS 2015-16 Combined)
I just added a Tableau Public set of dashboards showing combined 2015 and 2016 year results for the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), which allowed for comparisons and rate calculations at geographies smaller than provincial and territorial levels. These included Census Metropolitan Areas (CMAs) and health areas (units, zones, districts, etc.), as well as combined large, medium and small population centres, and rural areas, within a province or territory. The roughly 680 thousand rows of data, including calculations of statistical significance in differences done by Statistics Canada, allowed for some amazing comparisons… and eye opening results! There currently is nothing else quite like this published by anybody to show CCHS results!

And click on the following link if you want the latest version of CCHS results, 2016, but without geographies below the provincial level.

If you view it and have any questions or feedback, please leave them there so the discussions can be in one place as much as possible.
The combined year results, with much more granular geographic results, will be explained soon, but are already posted here if you want to look ahead of time. Thank you.
