Plaza Pública - Grouping public data from governmental portals into one platform: The Labyrinth of Power
Plaza Pública's Labyrinth of Power will be the platform that groups the public data sources which are currently scattered in different government portals in Guatemala. This tool makes data accessible to anyone in an easy, orderly and fast way. The connections behind the data will be translated into networks of power that show the links between different actors and will allow for the categorisation of actors according to the information that is introduced in a growing series of fields or categories.
This will allow for a more rapid and intuitive understanding of power flows and communicative bridges between different blocks of influence or interest groups. The platform will facilitate the production of investigative journalism that broadens, investigates and explains the dynamics of individuals and the networks to which they belong. It will also be useful for academic research that requires the use of this data.
