Future Work

In the course of the year, our team came up with a lot of strong ideas. We would like to have had the time to implement all of them and create a workable software package. However, this was not possible in our short project time.

Possible future directions for MetroViz include:
  • Useful improvements (e.g. automatic unit conversions
  • System Interaction (e.g. pulling data from other sources)
  • History (e.g. a login functionality to keep track of individual's changes)
  • Apply this tool for the other departments within Pittsburgh

Other specific updates that can be made to the interface include:
  • Graphs
  • Add trend-line to bar charts
  • Add a pie chart or other graph types
  • More flexibility on editing the graph and changing the display
  • Communication features
  • Add contact information in metric description
  • Provide functionality to email metric contacts about discrepancies or misunderstandings
  • Add notes section for specific metrics
  • General Improvements
  • User-test and improve input and change interface
  • Contextual help
  • Save screen real-estate by using collapsible pallets
