Sources of inspiration for the graphical design of a business intelligence web application

I’m looking for sources of inspiration for the graphical design of a web application.

The application is used to display historical information on industrial processes. In the back end there is a time-series database and a data warehouse.

The users of the application will configure pages with various information displays of data, for instance:

  • Dashboard-style displays, with selected KPIs, as numbers and visualized
  • Visualizations like line and bar plots
  • Tables containing numbers

Answer

I’ve worked on a similar product and found some useful resources:
