A lot of the prototypes and products you will find here on aidinfo labs make use of datasets provided through the International Aid Transparency Initiative. The IATI Registry maintains a comprehensive listing of all the available IATI files, from a growing number of donors and organisations.
Usually IATI publishers provide one IATI dataset/file for each country they work in, or split the details of the aid activities they are reporting up in some other way. In the support section of this site you may find shared tools and code snippets to help you bring together different IATI datasets to work with.
The Aid Information Universe
IATI is one part of a wider aid information universe. The Data Hub lists a large collection of aid information datasets, the latest version of which is displayed below. Aid information tools and resources might also draw on a far wider range of open data and information – from creative commons photos shared on Flickr, to crowdsourced feedback from citizens where aid money is being spent. The Open Data Cook Book has a number of pointers on other places you can find data and information you might be able to use in making aid information accessible.
We also know that aid information is just one part of many other fields. Aid information can be connected with other data on resource flows. It can be used as part of a wider international development information eco-system. And it can be an important part of a national data resources, as well as having international dimensions.
