Brisbane-based data visualisation company Truii has produced an impressive data visualisation of the 2015-16 Queensland Budget:
The data visualisation uses open data from the Queensland Government, including a comprehensive data set on contracts and grants. By linking to open data, the Truii site allows analysts to uncover an even greater range of insights than are available from Truii’s data visualisations alone. To illustrate, one can compare the performances of the big four professional services firms in winning Queensland Government work (see my chart below). It appears 2015-16 was a very good year for KPMG!
Truii’s data visualisation site was commissioned by the Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation as part of its Testing Within Government program. Many thanks to Maree Adshead, CEO of Open Data Institute Australian Network, for alerting me to this excellent data visualisation.
