The World Health Organization (WHO) has created a public example of a parameterized Web-based reporting solution in the form of its Global tuberculosis report 2012.
Tuberculosis country profiles are generated automatically, through Style Intelligence mashup software, based on data reported by countries and which are held in WHO’s global TB database.
Users can choose what country’s data they want to view (a.k.a., input a parameter), and the report will be run accordingly. Results can be viewed on the Web or in .PDF format.
Run this report for yourself here.
