La Nación gives Tableau a try
Argentinian newspaper La Nación has been experimenting with the Seattle-based Tableau software and the result is impeccable: a good-looking, interactive data-built map with a list of local transparency laws or applicable regulations.
Internal insight, via Nación DATA blog:
This collaborative project consists of an interactive map about transparency and public information in Argentina. The final version includes different provisions, ordinances, laws and resolutions on transparency sorted by political jurisdiction.
It took many months to be finally finished. We have no doubt that this map will be useful not only for those who advocate a more transparent government, but also for journalists, code developers, and activists of all sorts.
