Dot Dashboards


Dot Loves Data is working in partnership with LGNZ to provide territorial authorities with relevant and timely information about the performance of their communities.  We have built a suite of interactive and dynamic dashboards that provide monthly, aggregated data on how your community is performing and changing over time.

This information is particularly relevant following COVID-19 because our communities will change significantly. To make good decisions you will need monthly information about your community’s economic performance, business resilience, unemployment levels, benefit levels, crime, gambling and housing.

We will provide you up to date insights via beautifully simple formats, making information accessible and easily consumable for the user.

Why use DotDotDash?

DotDotDash helps you get the information and data you need, to service the needs of your constituents or customers. The dynamic nature of the data allows users to make appropriate interventions at the right time and place, and accurately measure their success. It is regularly updated, easy to navigate and easy to digest with the ability to look back in time to compare interventions.
