Project Description

A visualization of Iraq's 2016 Budget, using information published by the Ministry of Finance. Originally the data was published in form of a low-resolution PDF scan of paper documents. Technically the information was available, but very difficult to access and understand by the general public. A representative from the Iraqi Governance Center for Public Policies and the PeaceTech Lab collaborated to translate the document and visualize it using Tableau Public. Once the interactive graphic was created, it was shared on Facebook and presented at PeaceTech Exchange: Iraq.
