Media Transparency Dashboard

Problem

Governmental advertisement in media and sponsorships are a possible way to influence press opinion. Therefore, the Austrian parliament passed a law that made it mandatory for governmental organizations to disclose their expenses for advertisements in different media (TV, radio, print, as well as online). This so-called "media transparency database" is made publicly available by the Austrian Regulatory Authority for Broadcasting and Telecommunications (RTR) via the Austrian open government data portal. It contains the accumulated amount of money transferred in a certain quarter of the year for each governmental organization and media company. This database can be explored as a multimodal dynamic network.

Aim

Design and prototypical implementation of an interactive visual dashboard  to explore the media transparency database comprised of coordinated multiple views.
