For the past few months I’ve been working with Brett Mandel on creating a data visualization of Philadelphia’s General budget. We used a treepmap from D3 to show expenditures categorized by department, but lets you drill down to al 217,450 expenditures.
We’re launching it today, so check it out and see what you can find. If you see anything interesting or find any errors, email me.
