Our client was in need of an organizational chart outlining his extensive administrative structures. Besides being easy to read and navigate, it also had to be maintainable by university staff to accomodate frequent changes.
To give users the best possible orientation, our interactive chart only ever displays a partial area of the structure. This keeps the user focused on the relevant institutions. The hierarchy of personnel is visually emphasized by grouping related entities around one another – similar to the periodic table. A custom back-end lets administrators drag and drop entities around as needed and edit contents and structure either via built-in editor or omnigrapher file import.
