The Cork Dashboard provides citizens, public sector workers and companies with real-time information, time-series indicator data, and interactive maps about all aspects of Cork county and city. It enables users to gain detailed, up to date intelligence about the city that aids everyday decision making and fosters evidence-informed analysis.
The Cork Dashboard pulls together data from major data sources including Cork City and County Councils, the Central Statistics Office, Eurostat, the Environmental Protection Agency, Met Éireann, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, government departments, and links to a variety of existing applications. The underlying data is freely available so others can undertake their own analysis and build their own applications and visualisations.
