The Governance Databank

Use

The local search engine offers multiple choices with quick results, with document saving easily accomplished and some downloading available (spread-sheets, charts), but the overall design could have a more user-friendly approach

Searchability

A local search engine offers multiple choices (keyword, date, etc.) and provides quick results, sorted by date or score - including a short list of sponsored links.

Downloading

Along with the general open access to any dataset and document, users can download some files in ZIP or Excel formats

Navigational Aids

A comprehensive sitemap is available, along with an Index and a Help file; also useful visual tips are to be found throughout the site pages

In general, the database design looks a bit overwhelming and clumsy, even if some areas offer an alternative, user-friendly interface to display data (on Governance Indicators, for example)
