AO 10656 ‘Provision of interactive visualisation services’
The purpose of the call for tenders is the selection of up to 2 economic operators for the provision of services related to the visual representation of information and data with dynamic and/or interactive features.
Contractor's premises or any other place indicated in the tender. Meetings between the Publications Office of the European Union and the contractor may be held on the Publications Office of the European Union or the author service's premises.
The object of this project is the provision of services concerning the visual representation of information and data with dynamic and/or interactive features.
In the specifications, we use ‘information’ as the broadest term (including, for instance, texts or illustrations). Hence, we consider data visualisations a subset of information visualisations.
The aim of this project is to cover all types of information, including complex types like, for instance, spatial components.
Interactivity is understood as the capacity of the visualisation to react to certain input from the user. Interactivity can apply to information (which information is displayed) and to the presentation (how that information is displayed).
Dynamism of the visualisation is understood as its capacity to change over time. We could make a distinction between dynamic and interactive visualisations (e.g. an animated visualisation that auto-runs is dynamic but not interactive) but for simplicity we consider dynamic visualisations as a subset of interactive visualisations.
The information to be represented can itself be static or dynamic. To avoid terminological confusions we will call the latter ‘flowing’ information, and restrain ‘dynamic’ to qualify the visualisations.
Static information is a specific and closed set of information given as an input to a development project. Flowing information is information that evolves with time. Flowing information can be contained in databases or other data sources.
For visualisations with flowing information, the required connection or integration with the data sources can be part of the scope of this service.
Static visualisations or infographics (i.e. unanimated images) are outside of the scope of this project.
The requested service might cover (list not exhaustive):
— setting the purpose of the visualisation,
— collecting information,
— validating information,
— transforming information,
— analysing information,
— setting the editorial line of the visualisation,
— designing the visualisation solution,
— implementing the visualisation,
— implementing additional features,
— integrating the visualisation,
— managing the project,
— assuring the quality of the product,
— documenting the product,
— maintaining the product.
