With the help of BIME, the Province of British Columbia (BC, Canada's western most province) publish their data on the province's court systems. Their aim is to become more transparent and to open up their data for use by the province's citizens, businesses, media and academics. To achieve this the department worked in partnership with BIME, to produce dashboards visualizing the statistics and key measures from all the province's courthouses. The dashboards present interactive data visualizations displaying information geographically and broken down into easily accessible, user-friendly graphs and pie charts. Users are able to drill-down and search statistics from individual regions or courthouses. Statistics include the number of new court cases, months to case conclusion, court hours and scheduled court appearances for the three levels of court in BC.
