The flow application is designed to visualise and explore the IATI data. The data are retrieved on a regular basis from URLs supplied by contributing organisations in the IATI registry.
For the purposes of this application, only transactions of type 'Disbursement' or 'Expenditure' are included. For an explanation of the different IATI transaction types see here.
Where transaction values are supplied in currencies other than USD, values are converted to USD using current exchange rates before being included in the calculations.
IATID:Flow was announced as the winner of the Guardian/Google data visualisation competition on December 21st 2012.
