    v136 v137  
    4747 * South Carolina [ EPHT].  Main menu has organized primarily into health and enviro with topics sub selections that go to static content pages.  Lot of sub pages but they have breadcrumbs that help show the selection path.  Getting to the interactive data is not straight forward.  For example the main "Health" menu has a "Data Maps SC Public Health".  This takes you to their main index page that has a non obvious list of selections (needs to be link underlines).  Most of the links I tried went to sub selection list page then you drill down to some end node pages are simply PDFs while others are the report builder page.  The main Map selection is not what it says (likely very frustrating for end users) it is many nested pages and easy to get lost trying to find their interactive maps/query.  When you do get to their data system it is a separate GIS app [] so path/navigation is gone.  However, once here it is self standing as you can select a different IP and see the map and data table.  The textual info consists of definition and source but is not context based - general one page covers all IPs.  Map area hover highlights legend but no chart or table interaction.  No options to filter etc.  Clicking on area(s) produces a very nice profile report that show HLS type table with sub rows for the selected community.  Table lists all IPs based on their standard IP groupings/categories.  Can export map image but nothing else.  The "Environment Menu" has a "GIS Apps and Data" that provides 2 large buttons "GIS Data" and "Interactive Maps".  The GIS data is a mechanism to download data files.  The Interactive Maps takes you to another selection page that shows many mapable data categories.  Many of these have one or more sub selection pages to actually get to a point where you can use the ESRI based map report.  For example on the main map category page choose EPHT.  From here you have to choose a topic which takes you to a topic page which then requires a scroll down to the Track It Map button or to the bottom which has a track it map it button that takes you back to the start!.  Once you get to the ESRI report page you have a new window that is not part of the normal site so how you got there and getting back is not trivial.  The ESRI query builder shows dependent selections which results in a full features ESRI map.  Along with the map you have options to view the data table, create a chart, and in some cases a trend line. The dialog window has an issue with loosing some button on the bottom that is not reachable in Chrome.   Text info is limited to singular data source and measure definition. 
    4848 * Vermont [ EPHT] main page.  **Different Left nav with Icon then Concise topic title** that takes you to a general topic intro page with related links.  The top horizontal menu is their context menu.  Under "Alerts" there are links to reports which are PDFs etc.  Most of the site is static page navigaton.  Towards the bottom of the left nav is a Chart type icon that has the associated data selections.  The top selection results in a "Data Explorer" which results in a stand alone (new window that is not embedded within their normal page) Instant Atlas type dashboard (map, data, chart with each community highlighted).  Report page has an "Info" page that provides complete description of the indicator.  It also has a link to the meta data, and a general definition and data source page.  Report page's data can be exported to XML, CSV, XLS.  The various selections on this data portion either goto the map report or to a sub selection list page which then has PDF or other static pages.  Getting to the map page can be a chore as some pages will go there while others simply drive to a PDF index.  It is not obvious which of these links go/do what.  [ Vermont Data Explorer Example].
     49 * [ Vermont scorecard interface].  [ Main stories done as pdf publications].  Vermont doesn't have a bunch of view pages, they have a 1..n interface where you stay on same page but show a different chart [ MS BI].  NOTE: They repeat each graphic but concept is that you could simply cycle through the views BUT this doesn't handle MAPS nor supplemental nor static content.  UI changes between main site and the MS BI "dashboard" pages.  Left nav is different at first but once get used to it makes sense.  They don't have the same options for all sections but have context based selections.  TONS of content and can easily get lost/deep but it's all there with graphics and seems appropriate.  The scorecard works and has a decent left hand iconish hint as to what the thing is e.g. indicator, program, outcome.  Small state of 624,263 so well thought out/full implementation.  Nice publications as well.
    4950 * Washington.  [ Health Data Visualization] index.  From this main index reports are Tableau based (sharable, full report PDF export, sources, some filtering options, interactive chart/data table/map etc).  The Opioid report has the first view providing a static content type awareness page with graphics and text (similar to other sites that have the first tab having intro type content).  Nice thing with Tableau is that the visualization is built within the normal web page.  Downside is that any changes to visualization isn't  saved/bookmarkable other than the embed share link mechanism.  [ Example of side by side maps]. 
    5051  [ WTN] Washington EPHT has their main topics on the left nav with bread crumbs on top.  Navigation is flat and easy to see where at and how got there.  The topic pages provide "map and data" access through the "Search WTN" which is a "Data Explorer" interface builder that specifies a search as you type keywords, section, topic, sub topic, measure, with filtering.  Produces a data table, chart, map, and a contextual info like About, Caveats, and related links.  This interface appears to be ESRI based? and also allows side by side visualizations of different selectable measures.  Has csv data export and some basic map interaction.
