AidView – we need your help!

1 Comment

We’ve recently launched our new aid data platform – AidView – in beta. Aidview allows you to easily access detailed and timely aid data published through the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI), via a series of interactive visualisations.

Available through iPads, Andriods and all modern web browsers, AidView enables you to have the information you need at your fingertips, when you most need it.

All data on AidView has been published directly by donors via the IATI Registry. You can browse for data by sector, funder or geographical location of aid. Once you’ve found the data you’re looking for, you can match it up against other files and then save your selection to come back to whenever you want.

We are confident that AidView is a useful tool for aid-data users, but we know that the system can be improved. We’d like your help to show us what these improvements might look like, and so we’re conducting some user-testing to feed into the final round of AidView developments.

The first stage takes the form of a short user-test, which includes 10 questions and should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. It has been designed to test the functionality and usability of AidView. The second stage asks for your feedback on the live version of the website via email or phone, whichever you prefer.

If you are happy to help us please follow the link below to take part in the online test first, then follow links at the end of the test to view the live AidView website, where you can complete the second stage of the test. At this point you will be asked to download a word document listing some further questions about the live site.

To help shape the future of AidView click the link below and take our test. Thank you!

If you have any more thoughts or comments we’d love to hear from you, just get in touch. We’ll be posting the outcomes of the test here in a few weeks, see you then.
