Newly launched – The Miso Project
This week has seen the launch of The Miso Project, an “open source toolkit designed to expedite the creation of high-quality interactive storytelling and data visualisation content”. It is a joint development between The Guardian (with Alastair Dant and Alex Graul at the helm) and Boston-based Bocoup (led by Irene Ros).
Visiting the Dataset pages brings up a number of examples which showcase the different stages of a data transformation and management process. The main example shows Cabinet Office Spending and is presented as an interactive tree map to demonstrate selecting and connecting to remote data files as well as grouping data.
