Today is our first day of dashboard week. This morning we were briefed by Craig that we needed to use an API from Open Data and create a dashboard based on the data we downloaded.

I started by downloading some straightforward data about rest areas in NSW. Using this I created a simple dashboard you can view below or by clicking here. The user can then highlight rest areas by certain features such as having a playground or toilet facilities.

I then decided to return to Alteryx to create an app that allows you to input a chosen route. You can then choose the facilities you desire in a rest area and it will find the nearest matching rest stops and the distance between them. You can see my workflow below.
