Do you think anyone other than you will be uploading datasets to the site?

Usually, what we would recommend in this case is to publish your data into
OpenSpending, and build what you need using its API. We're calling that
Satellite Sites (i.e. http://cameroon.openspending.org/en/,
http://www.wheredoesmymoneygo.org/). But I guess your use case is a bit
more complex, or not?

Furhtermore, I am not so sure if you really are interested in more than

Yes, we are! You never know if something interesting won't come out when
comparing the Austria and Brazil budgets, for example :P

By the way: thank you for this great piece of software!

You're welcome :-)

If you have any problem/suggestions with the code itself, ping us in
