For this demo, we will show two interactive visualizations: Energy Futures and Pipeline Incidents. We designed and developed these visualizations as part of an open data initiative that aims to create interactive data visualizations to help make Canada's energy data publicly accessible, transparent, and understandable. This work was conducted in collaboration with the National Energy Board of Canada (NEB) and a visualization software development company, VizworX.
