Today launched another interactive tool on the VALiD website: The Media Transparency Dashboard offers a visual analytics solution to explore open government data on media transparency in Austria. This dataset covers money flows from government organizations to media companies for advertisement (§2) and sponsoring (§4) and currently has more than 34,000 (non-null) entries over 3.5 years The dashboard is comprised of multiple coordinated views that can be used together to discover insights.

David Pfahler from TU Wien has developed the dashboard together with the ValiD project team. The source code is available from GitHub as free and open source software.

More visual analytics experiments with the Media Transparency dataset are planned for the future. You can find the Media Transparency Dashboard at
