At Leeds City Council we have lots of information on our website pages about the activities and sports on offer at our various leisure centres.  We wanted to see how newly published data could present this same data in a new and interactive way.  Working with Hebe Works, we published the data on Leeds Data Mill and then let Hebe get on with the flashy stuff!

This visualisation shows brilliantly how data can be turned into something which is really easy to use.  Simply by hovering over a leisure centre or activity, you can easily find out which sports and activities are available at each leisure centre.  Simple, yet really effective!
