Oxfam Novib publishes IATI data

on May 15th, 2014 at 9:23:48 PM

Today, Oxfam Novib went public with their Atlas project browser and open data.

Various people in the Open for Change network have been working with Oxfam Novib for a while now, helping to explore the potential of "open" and to transform the organisation towards "open". The starting point was "open data", but Oxfam Novib didn't focus on just the technical side of things: they wanted to embed "open" more deeply into the way they worked.

One part of that was building a web interface for their own staff to have better insight in where projects were happening: the Atlas browser.
