OpenSpending goes live | Open Knowledge Foundation Blog   Leave a comment

Great concept. Am sure it will evolve as people find it and add to it. Knowledge is power , as the truism goes.

 

“After several months of hard work, we are glad to announce the official launch of OpenSpending and turn to everyone interested in government accountability and financial transparency to help shape the future of the project.

The OpenSpending project will make it easier for the global public to explore and understand government spending. Our developers have already imported a range of datasets, including projected budgets from the European Union, detailed spending data from the UK Treasury, and smaller datasets such as the UK’s Barnet Council local budget.

The project will also integrate with Spending Stories, our Knight News Challenge-winning project, allowing narratives and explanations to be woven around spending data.”
