Overheidscijfers.nl: an experiment

We develop our own websites to experiment with new web technology and derived communication forms. The techniques are applied again in websites we develop for clients.

An example is Overheidscijfers.nl. 'Overheidscijfers.nl' is Dutch for 'government data'. On this website we recently experimented with new techniques (parallax backgrounds). The website provides access to and explanation of a number of public organizations that publish figures.

Private versus public

Undeterred by government regulations for government websites we as a company can present things easier in a casual way than the relevant government organizations themselves. But we want to do this without doing violence to the truth and with full appreciation for the correct and honest way in which the relevant government agencies fulfill their public tasks. More and more government information is accessible so keeping this site up to date is a challenge. On a daily basis tweets are composed about content on the site and new government data on other websites.
