Create beautiful visualisations with data on OpenSpending.org using a simple, elegant user interface made available in the WordPress editor.
The OpenSpending community project aims to build and use open source tools and datasets to gather and analyse the financial transactions of governments around the world.
Only by understanding the financial transactions that are made in their name can citizens hope to hold government to account, and begin to effect positive change they wish to see in the world.
The OpenSpending WordPress plugin provides an easy-to-use visualisation creator for financial data hosted on OpenSpending.org. Emphasis is on making the interface more user friendly than configurable.
Via a simple popup, users fill in necessary details of the dataset they want to visualise. This creates a shortcode that can be placed on pages or in blog posts to render beautiful, interactive, tried and tested visualisations which OpenSpending is known for.
