What does drill-down refer to?

In the context of data visualisation, "drill-down" refers to moving from one visualisation to another, usually from higher-level information to more detailed data. This is achieved by hyperlinking two visualisations and may involve passing parameters between the two visualisation data sets. Concretely, in MINT this would mean for example that a click on a specific part on a chart in a dashboard leads to another report or dashboard that details the data. As a simple example, one could have a chart representing the number of mine victims by gender. When clicking on either the "male" or the "female" part of the chart, the user would get to another chart, showing for example the number of victims by activity at the time of accident for the chosen category, i.e. male or female.
