Visualizing the overall results for Uganda

See the detailed results for all of our five clusters visualized in one chart: Access, Digital Rights, Media and Journalism, Society, and Innovation. Please click to enlarge the image.

This image allows you to see the status for digital participation in Uganda in our five clusters: Digital Rights, Access, Media and Journalism, Society and Innovation. 

Each spoke represents the results of one of our clusters. That means that the length of the spoke visualizes the magnitude of digital participation for the respective cluster. As well, all of the spokes together form a surface that indicates the level of participation through a colour range. The colour ranges from red in the middle to green in the outer part of the spokes. All in all, the radar chart enables to see the overall results as well as the cluster-specifif results in one view.
