As many of you know, a data visualization created for DC Action for Children by DataKind DC volunteers back in 2012 has been going global. Initially created to map public data on child well being in Washington, D.C. to help inform policymakers, it has since been repurposed by DataKind teams in the UK and a Code for America team in Kentucky to measure youth well being in other communities.
We're excited to say the code has been repurposed yet again - this time in India. DataKind Bangalore Chapter Leader Gaurav Godhwani recently used the code to inform a different kind of public policy discussion - public finance.
Feeling inspired about using open data in your community? Repurpose the source code for your local needs and let us know what you end up building!
