Digiminster Members Data Portal, for UK Parliament: Voting, campaign finance data, and debates

Digiminster Members Data Portal has been launched by the UK Parliament’s Rapid Apps Team.

The portal includes voting and campaign finance data, and parliamentary debates, chunked.

Data come from a variety of official sources, including the Members’ Data Platform.

The following posts, from the team’s blog, describe the content and design of the portal:

The design of the presentation of debate data is especially notable. [Click here for an example.] The text is chunked into paragraphs, each having a unique URI. Each chunk is displayed in sequence, with a different background color, and accompanied by a photo of the speaker. The alignment of the photos alternates, to simulate dialogue.
