2. Implementation's characteristics

Jawny Lublin website was established as grassroots initiative of one of Lublin’s foundation. The website is an example of using public data (in the form of graphical visualization).

The data, gathered on the website, come from the Lublin Town Hall and were made available on the basis of the law on access to public information. The aim of the portal is presenting a summary of the city’s expenditures in a cross-sectional and visually attractive manner.
The creators of the website allow users to thoroughly investigate what the funds from the municipal budget are spent on. Features available on the website allow, among others, to use taxes calculator, where one can use a slider to select their monthly (or annual) gross income and then check what amount, as taxes, goes to the city budget. In the next step, the system calculates, with specific amounts, which of the local government tasks the money is spent on.

An important element of the Jawny Lublin website is also publishing information on the citizens’ rights – with specific emphasis on the right of access to public information. As part of such kind of citizens’ initiative, information about the activities of municipal companies, including a record of the most important contracts of the said companies, is published on the website.
