Optimal Visualisation Engine
What is OVE?
Ever need to quickly visualise a quantity of something into a physical representation? OVE can do this for you, and give you a download of the visualisation in a reusable format. For example: The population of Wellington is 216,800 which, by itself is just a number that can be difﬁcult to represent as something tangible. OVE gives you that tangible object, in this example you can represent the population of Wellington in Westpac Stadiums, 7, in fact.
Images you say?
Visually represent a number with an image to make the information feel more real. Our graphics are made in-house to offer both flexibility and consistency as well as the ability to expand the library and fulfil requests.
All of our graphics are:
- Custom made
- Fully scalable
- Consistently styled
- High quality vectors
It’s 100% free!
OVE is a free web based application you can use to help visualise quantity into images, which you can then download to use as part of your presentation, document or infographic.
Here’s an example
Imagine you work in tourism, and you know that Wellington hosted 158,780 cruise ship visitors this summer, but ﬁnd it difﬁcult to visualise how many people that actually is. OVE can do the visualising for you. Simply ask it to represent how many Westpac Stadiums would be required to hold 158,780 people.
Where OVE comes in
5 Westpac Stadiums would be needed to seat the number of cruise ship tourists, which is 2 stadiums less than that required to hold the population of Wellington. You can use this information, and more, to create an infographic about cruise ship visitor numbers in Wellington, just like we’ve done with this example:
Create your infographic
OVE will output all the graphics you need to build your visualisation. All you have to do is import them into your favourite design tool and add your text to make a data story. SVG’s are widely supported so whether you’re using Adobe Illustrator, SVG-Edit, or MS Paint, you can make the most of OVE.
