RMIT’s Centre of Innovative Justice worked with ThinkPlace to transform a complex dataset which maps the roles and responsibilities of all government and non-government agencies and service providers who have contact with perpetrators of family violence in Victoria into a stunning set of visualisations.
As part of the Victorian Government’s response to the Royal Commission into Family Violence, RMIT’s Centre for Innovative Justice was asked to complete a mapping exercise to identify the roles and responsibilities of all government and non-government agencies and service providers who have contact with perpetrators of family violence.
ThinkPlace collaborated with the the Centre for Innovative Justice to synthesise this large amount of data into a series of maps that visualise the points of interaction a perpetrator of family violence has with organisations within the system. ThinkPlace produced 25 highly visual maps that identified all agencies and services involved in the ecosystem and communicated gaps, overlaps and inconsistencies in intervention and prevention service delivery.
These maps made sense of all the information and presented it in an accessible and useful way to stimulate conversation between the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the organisations in contact with perpetrators.
The judges said: “It’s not easy to bring together complex data into a way that makes the gaps quickly visible. Interesting approach! The illustration is original and communicates a welcoming spirit.”
