I have posted a short blog article at http://tetrahedra.co.uk/eating-my-own-dogfood on three possible tools to use or visualise IATI data:
- amCharts charting tools (needs XSL transformation)
- Yahoo! Pipes (the XML needs a slight modification to add an XML declaration)
I'll follow up with more detailed "how-to" articles including code.
We are playing with the idea of creating an open-sourse report service that will call on and make use of IATI data from more than one donor.
It would be great to have something to show already in Busan but with such a deadline we want to avoid running into already know dead-ends. We would really appreciate to hear about any experiences on this topic. Why has IATI chosen leave the presentation of data to intermediaries?
So before we take on such a task we want to lift the question to make sure that we aren't in over our heads.
I'll be blogging on AidInfoLabs about that shortly, but happy to chat about the details more as well as I think this might be a useful foundation for different tools that want to provide interfaces across the data.
