I've just posted a draft submission for the Building Democracy 
competition from the Ministry of Justice:


Comments would be particularly appreciated regarding, "What kind of 
assistance would you like from others?".

At the moment I have:

I intend to collate as much relevant data as possible, to analyse it and 
decide upon a suitable structure and focus. I will then work with 
existing open source geospatial, timeline and visualisation software - 
such as MIT's Simile Suite, Prefuse and Processing - to develop a 
working model for a taxpayer in Hackney.

I would greatly benefit from advice regarding how to structure the data, 
budgetary classification, and from developers with experience of using 
visualisation packages.

Does this sound like a realistic way to proceed? And does this sound 
like the right kind of thing to ask with assistance with?
