Hi Cab,

I have had a statistics dashboard project on the back burner for a while. A
few dashboards that come to mind, all of which appear to use different
back-end technologies:
IU School of Library and Information Science<>

Indianapolis Museum of Art <>
University of Richmond<>

Hope this helps.
