Version 2 of COVID-19 National Interest Action Spending

Declaring victory on this updated visualization!

While similar to the initial dashboard, behind the scenes this represents a personal accomplishment of learning and applying the following goals:

  • Python script
    • Save data to a Google sheet
    • Improve HTTP error handling when reading the ATOM feed
    • Capture total number of records from ATOM feed for terminating the loop that gets 10 records at a time
  • Tableau
    • Read data from a Google sheet, with automated daily updates
    • Join two Google sheets to link Product and Service Code Categories to the PSC assigned to an acquisition record
    • Add user configurable filter for Obligated Value range and displayed PSCs

See this important note and disclaimer about the data behind this dashboard.
