The NCN Annual Report was an amalgamation of several PHP scripts which produced various text, CSV and HTML outputs that were served up by copying them or viewing them on a separate website. It was created over time as demands changed rapidly. With new reporting demands and comprehensive re-engineering of the metrics backend processing on nanoHUB, a new reporting tool was needed.

The NCN Retrospective Report is an evolving Jupyter notebook that attempts to produce a complete retrospective report with the click of a button. Being a Jupyter notebook, it is easily modified to meet changes needs now and in the future.
