What are ratings?

Ratings let you assess a visualisation according to:

How much a visualisation makes you take notice of it

How well it portrays the true data behind it

Rate visualisations according to your own impressions and expertise. We also ask you to let us know how you rate your own level of expertise in terms of data and visualisation, so that we can filter ratings further in future.

For more information on ratings and levels of expertise, see our help page.

As part of the project ‘Mapping the UK's Research & Intellectual Property’, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has developed this interactive tool that combines several types of visualizations to offer a dynamic view of the subject in the UK. It shows through time the change of the hotspots and intensity of investment in several subjects: radio frequency identification, plastic and electronics, regenerative medicine and advanced composite materials. The map on the left shows the investment intensity in the form of hotspots located geographically and colour coded by subject. The panel on the right shows the cumulative investment in each subject.
