For many years, Post Office Travel Money, part of the Royal Mail Group, has continuously monitored the price of 8 popular tourist items across the globe, producing an annual “travel barometer” report allowing holiday-goers to compare the costs of their favourite holiday destinations.
Out with the old and in with the new
The traditional reports that The Post Office were publishing on their website were presented in table format, and weren’t very engaging. They had tried using infographics, but these were time consuming to create as the data needed to be updated regularly. With a view to making these reports more engaging and easier to maintain, we designed an interactive data visualisation tool to help bring the barometer to life.
