¿Quién Compró? User Interface
I am glad to wrap a very interesting project, created through a truly distributed collaboration. Initiated in Mexico, managed from various countries (Nepal, Tanzania, Croatia to name a few) designed in Athens and developed in Kosovo. It originated in Mexico from a group of journalists advocating transparency of government expenditure and was refined by the Engine room through a great project management by Tin Geber. I was tasked with the design of the User Interface for the web application after which the visual elements were developed into a functioning live application by the Open Data Kosovo team.
Project description from the Engine room: ¿Quién Compró? uses Freedom of Information Requests to find out how Mexican congressmen and women are spending public money. They have a webpage which publishes articles explaining budget spending as well as allows users to look at and download receipts on items spent by congressmen and women. ¿Quién Compró? will work on building a more robust database management system. This will allow them to store and process data more effectively.
