Data visualization using custom map types

WordPress VIP collaborates with our featured partners to deliver unparalleled digital experiences for our clients. A recent interactive mapping project with Alley and the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation demonstrates what’s possible when we collaborate on forward-thinking implementations of enterprise WordPress.

The initial migration

The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) is a non-profit which focuses on delivering free, trustworthy, non-partisan content relating to national health issues. They are a leading source of data and analysis that a wide array of publications and researchers use to inform their own reporting.

WordPress VIP first teamed up with Alley in 2012 to help KFF unify all their legacy content and sites on a new platform. This undertaking required migrating 20 years’ worth of data (spanning nearly a dozen data sources) to WordPress.

Together, the team identified several success metrics for KFF’s new platform. First, it needed to improve user experience. Second, it must scale the ways people can access their work. Third, it should increase efficiency, and fourth, reduce costs. Finally, the platform also needed to evolve with the digital landscape for years to come. You can read more about the success of that initial project in this case study.

Alley’s data visualization solution

In 2018, building upon the success of that migration, KFF approached Alley with a challenge. The foundation needed a way to display state-level data on a map. They also requested an accompanying table, in a format that was easy to use. Furthermore, it should be embeddable within posts across their WordPress site.

A screenshot of the Kaiser Family Foundation data map, "Status of State Medicaid Expansion Decisions"

KFF is now rolling out this application for use in posts, issue briefs, and fact sheets across the site. At its core, it’s a novel and engaging way of displaying information. It’s also a lightweight replacement for an older, heavier, and less flexible application. And there’s even more in store. Plans are in the works for a second phase of the embeddable maps project. Next on the docket is adding new functionality and refining existing features.

Alley put together an excellent post outlining the technical details of the project. Is your organization looking for a creative and powerful way to display large amounts of data? If so, get in touch to see how WordPress VIP can help.

Welcome, dear reader

I've decided to start blogging again.  This blog is about the security architecture of the web platform, where we are today, how we go here, and where we're going tomorrow.  My goal is to write one in-depth, technical post a week.

I'm going to focus more on defense than offense, which means I won't be posting about the newest clever attack techniques (at least not that often).  Instead, I'll be taking you behind the scenes and showing you how we make the tough calls in securing the web platform.

Please feel encouraged to give me feedback, both about what works and what doesn't.  I hope you enjoy reading!
