Making the Holiday Impact Tracker
This tool was created in early 2019 and all of the data used was researched and collated by our Project Assistant Silvia Pellegri.
To create this tool involved identifying and categorising over 70,000 individual data points.
Because of the scale of the task and the way in which country and state authorities can vary public holidays with little notice, our Holiday Impact Tracker is a live project that is constantly being updated and improved. Whilst we have tried to ensure that all of the data gathered is as accurate as possible, there may be some errors or omissions.
If you spot any inconsistencies or errors in our holiday impact tracker, please do leave a comment or contact us below to let us know.
We have already planned a number of additional data layers that we will be building into the map over the coming months – all of which are designed to assist in planning global operations and we would be very pleased to receive your help and advice.
The data visualisation technology behind our Holiday Impact Tracker was built for us by our local digital mapping experts Parallel (also based in Leeds in the UK). You can read more about their work by visiting their website here.
