A quick post to highlight the exciting work done recently by the Open Knowledge Foundation. To build on the work they have done on the main Where Does My Money Go site, they have taken DFID data and made a new bubble chart, showing how funding is allocated to countries and organisations.
The chart will be updated as more data is released (figures for 2009-10 are due very soon) and it will be fascinating to see how the size of circles and length of those lines changes as priorities change.
This is we hope the first of many such visualisations.
Good to see the Guardian also blogged this chart – recognition from pioneers in the field of taking public sector data and doing innovative things with it.
