The Growing Dark Money Churn
This visualization represents the flow of dark money since 2008 as it relates to the top 10 most politicized groups. The information shown includes all of the money the Center for Responsive Politics has discovered flowing to each organization, all grants made by each organization to other politically active nonprofits, and all political spending (as reported to the FEC) by both the organization itself and its recipients, during the period covered by the donor organization’s IRS.

This is a visualization of the 1100+ open datasets made available by New York City. It is a force-directed graph generated with the charting library d3.js. NYC’s open data portal runs on the Socrata platform, and this visualization was created using the "dataset of datasets" and the Socrata Open Data API (SODA).
Why? The point is to show the scale of the portal, and to illustrate which datasets have user-created views. In the future, it would be great to dynamically size the circles by the popularity of the datasets.
