Issy-les-Moulineaux City Council has ruled on the financial statements of the past fiscal year on April 9th, 2015. The City has taken the opportunity to open financial data regarding its 2014 expenses along with a dozen datasets related to budget on its Open Data portal – powered by OpenDataSoft – and to issue its interactive financial report.
This flat-design portal includes parallax effects. All the graphs (almost 30!), but also a map and a picture gallery of public works, have been created with tools available on the Open Data portal. Thanks to responsive design, the 2014 financial report displays very well on any device (computers, smartphones, tablet computers).
The content is easy to understand:
- clear categories (operations, investments, debt, public works…)
- numerous graphs and charts (pie charts, bar charts, line charts…) created with tools available on the Open Data portal
- 12 key budget metrics displayed on the home page
- a map displaying the location of main capital expenditures and a picture gallery of public works
David Thoumas, OpenDataSoft’s CTO, commented the release of Issy’s financial report:
“This new financial report published by the City of Issy-les-Moulineaux shows how transparency policies go together with Open Data. Numbers don’t appear out of thin air anymore! They are explained and illustrated, they become more interesting and relevant to citizens at last. We are proud to be part of this initiative that showcases OpenDataSoft’s reusable HTML widget library, allowing a wider & quicker spread of Open Data in different shapes and sizes.”
