During the 2008 election, the Center for Investigative Reporting teamed up with National Public Radio to track independent groups pouring millions of dollars into election ads for the presidential and Senate campaigns.
I designed this Flash map for CIR, which houses streaming video ads and information about the groups spending the most money in each state. Data for each state is contained in text files, allowing for easy updating. The map acts as a portal leading to a campaign finance blog on NPR.org.
