More of The Guardian, website expenditure, crowdsourcing visualisations and THAT Birmingham City Council website…

30Aug10

Since the blog last week, the Guardian, after having had the data thrown their way by a couple of freelance journalists from Peopleperhour, have made the website expenditure across all the UK councils made public and the data is now readily available online.

It’s a shame that the link to the Guardian’s Manyeyes visualisation is a broken one, but it’s interesting that they have thrown data out to the audience to crowdsource visualisations and host them on their own Flickr group.

It’s a great chance to play around with a goldmine of data that is both contemporary and relevant, and there are some great examples up already.

So, to summarise, every councils spending on websites is up there, and ten have spent over £100,000, including the over-exuberant Birmingham City Council, pushing way out in front with £2,800,000. And the data is all there  for you to use.
