The Open Aid Map provides a platform for World Bank partners to map aid investments across the globe. It is an interactive, web-based system that serves two purposes: to aggregate information on development aid from various sources into a visual format, and to provide governments the capacity to view and analyze their own information on public service delivery.
Visualizations include maps showing project locations and sub-national poverty levels, and charts on aid flows and results. Individual countries have the ability to create their own version of the Open Aid Map and federate data through a common data model so that information can be aggregated both within and between countries. The system relies on open standards for data and data exchange, particularly the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) standard as well as boundary and naming standards for geographic data. The Open Aid Map and its companion data model are completely open source, and are hosted on GitHub.
