Beginner level | Drupal Government Day
After two years of publishing data on Data.ED.gov and Partner.HUD.gov using Drupal, we've distilled down our best practices into a data publishing module called the "Data Visualization Wizard" module. This module helps speed the publishing of data from Excel / CSV spreadsheet and create a summary view with a geographic map, pie and bar charts, a filterable/searchable listing, CSV downloadable open data and detail pages of each element. At this session, you'll learn how to obtain and use this module to upload data and create data visualizations such as Investing in Innovation (http://data.ed.gov/grants/oii/2011/investing-in-innovation) in your Drupal solution.
This module is available on drupal.org at: http://drupal.org/project/datavizwiz
This session will provide information on how a core group of open source advocates learned how to get passed “NO” to obtain approval for previously prohibited technologies. Agency fear and intransigence does not have to be the final word. Working together, a small core group can break through fear and loathing to affect real institutional changes through agile methods and Beta testing. If we can do it at VA, we know you can, too.
You have great content on your agency’s website, but can visitors find what they’re looking for?
Site search is a strategic asset that you need to make sure the public can easily find your agency’s official information. The panel will discuss how USASearch makes it easy for you to offer a commercial-grade search experience on any government site at no cost (that’s free).
During this case study, the panel will discuss how you can leverage USASearch and its Drupal module to deliver fast, relevant search results. They will also provide a live demo of current Drupal sites (e.g., Commerce.gov and WhiteHouse.gov) using USASearch.
Attendees will learn
1) Understand the importance providing a fast, relevant site search
2) Learn how to leverage USASearch and its Drupal module to provide site search on their government site—at no cost.
Attendees will learn about the Amazon Cloudformation Service and how with some basic templating, a Drupal site can be created within a matter of minutes. This offers the benefit of keeping the configuration and template information in a small text file that can be managed with a version control system instead of storing large machine images in the Amazon Cloud. This saves cost and allows any number of duplicate sites to be created quickly to scale to customer needs. Radiant Blue Technologies has been utilizing the Amazon Cloud with a government intelligence agency with great success over the past six months.
