BUDGET VISUALIZATION PLATFORM
Understandable way of presenting comprehensive information
Budget visualisation platform (BVP) is a comprehensive tool focused on presentation of public finance dataset in a modern, user-friendly and interactive manner. And what is most important: it shows data in a very understandable way, having positive impact on raising awareness and transparency in public finance management area.
Ninety percent of all information that comes to the brain is visual. Graphical content reaches an individual’s brain in a faster and more understandable way than textual information. Some sources even suggest that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than text. Additionally, graphically we can communicate complicated facts in more simple and more understandable way.
BVP is able to on-line visualise current data of approved and adjusted budgets,
as well as history and current status of public spending. Numbers are shown at
the level of budget units (organizations), key spending units (line ministries) and government level. All state organizations as well as municipalities (self-governing regions, cities and villages) are included. The range and depth of published data
is a matter of configuration, according to clients’ needs and requirements.
BVP can operate with defined number of budget classifications. It shows hierarchic relations (in terms of organizational level and amount of budget funds) with complex but easy-to-use full-text search engine. Based on client requirements,
the solution can present detailed data on budget measures (adjustments), including background documents. All presented data can be downloadable in two formats (CSV and PDF), interconnectivity and transparency is ensured by making data accessible via open API.
Budget visualisation platform (BVP) provides graphical (interactive graphs and animation videos), numerical and textual information on public budgets, public spending and on main tasks and goals of public sector.
