Interactive IATI data – d-portal generator

d-portal is a platform that makes all IATI data accessible, and is a useful tool for investigating the increasing amount of IATI data. Nearly 300 organisations publish their activities in the IATI registry, so we set up d-portal to turn that data into simple information for everyone – particularly those in developing countries interested in seeing information from their own country’s perspective. In addition to this, we recently added the generator - to provide a means of re-using the IATI data in d-portal, by embedding it into other websites and blog posts.

How to select and embed content

Here we give you some examples of information you can show using the d-portal generator - these are various randomly chosen examples of data which are currently published to IATI, but of course you can choose any current publisher, or combinations of publishers and recipients, depending on what information you want to display.

This is a snapshot of a simple query we've run on the generator...choosing Development Initiatives from the Publisher dropdown, and then the 'Sectors (table)' view...

gen screen - DIPR sectors search

...and here's the resulting table - which we've embedded below by copying the code generated in the white box (above), and pasting it into the html code for this webpage. You can now click on information in the table, to explore further...

By changing around what you select in the generator dropdowns you can create a variety of different content - here's a few more examples of content that we generated from the IATI data in d-portal. We'd love to hear your feedback from using d-portal and the generator - please do email us any thoughts and feedback.
