Data Discovery Platform
Our Data Discovery Platform (DDP) is represented by an interactive sunburst chart, which is a very visual way for us to share your UK Link data with you. We have built several sunburst diagrams for you to interact with. Each ray on the chart represents a category of data. You can explore the data categories in each chart by hovering over the different rays, and clicking on them to delve deeper into your data.
