The UIS Dashboard is a mashup recently done by the Virtual Kenya developers who carried out an assignment for UN-Habitat's h2.0 initiative on behalf of Upande.

The Urban Inequity Survey (UIS) dashboard displays data collected from smaller urban centers on a range of water supply and sanitation issues. Currently, the data presented by the UIS dashboard covers small towns in Mainland Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya and Uganda. The dashboard contains data collected in 2006 in Kenya, 2006 and 2009 in Mainland Tanzania and Uganda and 2009 in Zanzibar.


The UIS dashboard is divided into three parts:

  1. The map-viewer
  2. The navigation panel
  3. The query tool

These three parts of the dashboard are used to navigate, select indicators and sub-indicators and view results in the map viewer and in graphs. It also features a query tool that allows users to select among topics and indicators for analysis, including an integrated indicator analysis to compare the UIS data with global coverage definitions.

By selecting the household slum condition, the user is able to analyze the inequities that exists on peoples access to water and sanitation facilities. The query tool also features motion charts that are used to show the data as spread across time.The selection of indicators and sub-indicator will displays the results on the map-viewer.
