The Dynamic Analysis and Reporting Tool (DART) is an online platform designed for humanitarian and development organisations and government entities responding to displacement situations. It enables them to explore, analyse and visualise data collected during collaborative profiling exercises, and provides a space to work in groups to discuss, create and download draft reports. DART mainstreams best practices, facilitates data sharing and joint analysis, increases transparency and helps generate agreed results, with the ultimate aim of increasing the impact of profiling.
DART can be used during the analysis phase – exploring findings through various data visualisation functions – and during reporting – supporting report development through template structures, suggested chapter content and a report-building workspace where partners can work together in small groups.
As an online platform, DART is also a tool for sharing data and enabling the interactive dissemination of results. DART primarily contains data from profiling surveys, but it can also hold other datasets providing they meet certain criteria.
DART provides operational partners and policymakers with an easily accessible evidence base for their work and a forum to discuss and agree upon profiling data. It also facilitates the involvement of non-technical partners in data analysis and reporting who are often otherwise excluded from this key step in the process.
