The PEAK program strives to encourage a County-wide culture of performance excellence, continuous improvement and empirically based decision making as a means of helping to provide efficient, accessible and effective County services. Aligning with the County's mission and vision ensures that we are focused on citizen needs and expectations.
Data Visuals are an important component of telling the Kitsap County government story, and like other materials that tell our stories, they need to adhere to County brand standards and be consistent in style, tone, and message. Data visualization is a technique used to communicate data or other information by converting it into visual objects such as charts, graphs, and maps. This is done by pulling existing data from spreadsheets and IT systems and displayed so that it is easier to understand. It often allows for interaction to drill down and view the data from various perspectives. For example, a map showing active road improvement project for the past five years could have filtering options to view by specific year and/or specific area. All Data Visuals will use the approved technology and be reviewed and approved by the Public Communications Office and IS. County staff may request a Data Visual for publication purposes by submitting a Service Request through the MyHelpdesk application.
