OpenSpending offers an easy system to upload, explore and share public finance data – such as budgets or expenditure databases. While we offer search and visualization features to slice and dice financial data, our API is even more powerful: it enables anyone to easily create their own visualizations and budget apps, without building their own backend.
The site is offered as a free service. All code, content and data are shared and openly licensed. No user of the platform will become involuntarily dependent on the site. Our sustainability model relies both on grant funding and technical services provided to CSOs, governments, media and international organizations.
