The Transportation for America campaign created a Google Map to illustrate all of the regions in the country which are facing serious cuts in their transit service:http://t4america.org/transitcutsIt really demonstrates the national and systematic nature of this issue.
I am unable to get several links to work. Is anyone else having this problem?It appears that the links are part of someones' online Google documents.
Showing where our tax dollars are being use,is a good thing. Posting political "spin" columns in Google News is not.
I can't wait to have something similar in Canada!But I would be surprised to see any real improvement in privacy with our current administration.
The TARP map is not at all surprising. It seems that the largest concentrations of spending occurred where the largest numbers of people are.
A group of state agencies and private foundations have been uploading their funding data to http://aspire.omni.org in Colorado.There is a mapping feature, but more importantly, the tool addresses the need to link private and public funding with social indicators to begin to understand effectiveness. Seems to me the federal spending tracking on a visual map is just the beginning to understanding the effectiveness of the funding.
Congressman Mike Thompson (D-CA01) has also posted a map on his website: http://mikethompson.house.gov/
Aside from the postings of individual Members of Congress, is there a map or data showing TARP spending by congressional district?
