Campaign Spending Commission: Data Visualization Application

The Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission’s data visualization app was created in partnership with the State of Hawaii’s Office of Information Management and Technology, the State’s Information and Communication Services Division, and Socrata. The visualization tool has transformed tables of data into useful information that allows citizens to see where campaign funds are being spent and can help voters make more informed decisions, as well as identify any potential conflicts of interest.

App highlights:

  • View data using pie charts
  • View contributions by categories such as individuals, political parties, zip code
  • View contribution expenses for advertising, food & beverage, surveys/polls/voter lists, etc.
  • View contributions by amounts $1,000 or less and more than $1,000
