Transparency Toolkit


Transparency Toolkit is open source software that lets journalists, activists, and human rights workers chain together tools to collect, combine, visualize, and analyze documents and data.

Transparency Toolkit makes this process of examining public interest documents easier and more effective with tools to help anyone rapidly collect, combine, visualize, and analyze information from many different angles. These tools work in many different situations and require no coding ability. There are two main components to Transparency Toolkit. First, a collection of tools for getting data or documents, combining datasets, visualizing information, and analyzing documents. Second, a web application where users can use these tools individually or link together multiple tools. For instance, a researcher examining censorship in Belarus could use Transparency Toolkit to scrape the websites being blocked, extract the keywords mentioned in those websites, and generate a timeline that shows correlations between those blocking events with events in articles about the area and other reports of censorship.
