Alpha Release of Where Does My Money Go? Prototype
We’ve pleased to announce the alpha release of our Where Does My Money Go prototype. This is a web application that allows you to explore UK public spending – and you can take a look here:
Update: access underlying data here.
This an “alpha” release and its still a way from finished – we’re putting this out in the spirit of “release early, release often”. We’d greatly appreciate your feedback on specific bugs or problems – as well as your two cents on the prototype so far. Also we’d love your thoughts about issues that we’re aware of and currently working on:
- There are some issues with resizing for different screens. We have noticed things don’t look quite right with 1024 resolution screens. E.g. text overlaps in places.
- The national section is not yet functional.
- We are using the terminology derived from the datasets we are using, but are concerned that that this is rather jargonny and inaccessible.
So – over to you! What do you think? What could we do better?
