The iNZightVIT project is led by Professor Chris Wild from the Department of Statistics at the University of Auckland. He comes up with the big (and small) ideas that make iNZight intuitive and easy to learn. Since 2018, Andrew Sporle from McDonaldSporle Ltd has contributed ideas and funding support for extending iNZight's capabilities for use in research and official statistics.
The development of iNZight itself comes from the work of many statistics students from the university, most working part-time or as part of a research project.
Tom started working on iNZight in 2013, and is currently the main developer and maintainer. He has worked on all of the iNZight packages to varying degrees. Tom is currently studying towards a PhD in Statistics here at the University of Auckland.
Wilson began working on iNZight Lite in 2014. His work involves maintaining and implementing new features in the program, and fixing any bugs that show up. Wilson is currently studying towards a PhD is statistics here at the University of Auckland.
One of the original developers of iNZight, responsible for the original ideas being iNZight's interface and workflow.
While studying at the University of Auckland, Simon was the main developer of iNZight, responsible for the website, installers, and much of the package developement.
David worked on various parts of iNZight, including graphics, regression, time series, etc.
Junjie started working on iNZight as part of his MSc project, most of which is incorporated into the Multiple Response module. He also contributed to the GUI development of the Time Series and Model Fitting modules, and wrote the first iteration of iNZight Lite (originally iNZight Online).
From Germany, Marco came to New Zealand to complete his Honours and Masters degrees here at the University of Auckland. Marco's work on iNZight involved redesigning the iNZight GUI from scratch, making it far more user- and developer-friendly, as well as some improvements to the Time Series package.
Another German visitor, Christoph completed his Masters here and was also responsible for designing and developing the current Lite app much like Marco did for iNZight, making it easier for both users now and developers in the future.
These students worked on iNZight for their Summer Scholarship.
