You are now here: datademocracy > ECBSpeech: why this webapp

Aims: see the link above (the main page explaining the datademocracy concept), i.e. to "democratize access to data".

Each "case" will contain a different "shape", or "source"- in some cases with data analysis and visualizations.

Whenever there will an interim database to "distill" information from the source, it will be on Github, to enable further reuses without the need to reprocess the source data (sources will be always acknowledged and data tranformations and formatting documented).

Case 1: ECB Speeches 1997-2019 (selection of those with an English title or content) Thanks to the release on 2019-10-25 of a first CSV file containing the speeches listed on the ECB website, this examples enables to search by tag cloud.

As this is just an experiment, it shows, for each keyword, which speaker delivered speeches containing that keyword and in which year.
