You can learn a lot about how the federal stimulus money has been spent at Recovery.gov. The Recipient Projects database and interactive map lets you see where money was spent, the companies that received it, the types of projects they applied it to, and more.
Along with an interactive map, the data is illustrated with charts and links to more detailed information.
What I like about this interactive graphic:
- It’s straightforward and easy to use.
- It lets users choose among levels of detail.
- It represents data in a variety of formats and does so in a visually appealing way.
- It makes government spending seem transparent.
