Webinar: Data Analytics Case Study

July 19, 2018

12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

Open source tools can help make large amounts of data, like resource allocation in the federal budget,  actionable and user-friendly. In this webinar, the Data Transparency team from the Department of the Treasury's Bureau of the Fiscal Service will demonstrate the results of its efforts to educate taxpayers about $4 trillion in annual federal spending via open data and data analytics. The Data Transparency team built two websites following the principles of open data, agile development, and user-centered design: USAspending.gov and the Data Lab. Both sites leverage open source tools to build interactive visualizations and analyses to help the public, researchers, government entities, and others understand and use federal spending data.
