This is a sample from DataMarket's data aggregation project portfolio.
Assignment: To retrieve the breakdown for the Icelandic budget, import it into a database and prepare it for use in an interactive "drill-down" application.
Customer: Internal project
Project description: After it has been presented to the parliament, The budget is published on a dedicated website - Fjarlog.is. The data format is HTML, divided on several pages, one for each ministry. The HTML itself is not fully regular. The data was retrieved using a customized web-crawler, verified and cross-checked against the source and then stored in a database. Using this database, DataMarket wrote a simple data application, that presents an interactive view of the data in the form of a "drillable" column chart.
Scope: 2500 budget items with meta-data such as categories, category names, titles and the actual budget.$overright = true ?>
