We're now loading the dataset. This is quite large, so it may take a little while depending on your connection.
This website takes publically available data from the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) Annual Returns Locator Service, and converts it to a form that can easily be visualised and analysed.
The data is presented as a network, with political parties depicted as squares and donors as circles. Each donor is linked to the party they donated to, and the size and colour of the donor circles represent the size of the donations.
Clicking on a donor or party opens the info panel on the right providing more information. The filter panel on the left allows the data to be filtered many different ways.
This site is a edited copy of politicaldonations.info; many thanks to that original site's
