We develop tools that foster transparency, accountablity and participation
After the forced closing of Hungary’s biggest political daily Népszabadság and its archive at nol.hu K-Monitor has built a platform to let access to the articles became unaccessible with the help of volunteer programmers. The tool made the hundreds of thousands articles stored byInternet Archive available and searchable to the public. The tool is closed now as nol.hu's archive is online again. Our plan is to scale it to host other ceased news outlets.
MPs' asset declarations are published in scanned pdf formats no machine can read. This prevents the data from transparency and comparison. That's why we decided to build a platform to liberate the declarations and organize datasprints to involve volunteers in this project.
