msnbc.com, Onvia Debut The Stimulus Tracker

msnbccomStimulusTracker.jpgmsnbc.com and Onvia teamed up to create The Stimulus Tracker, which, as its name implies, tracks American Recovery and Reinvestment Act spending data in real-time based on geography, state, county and city.

The Stimulus Tracker includes an interactive map, an analysis of ARRA spending progression and specific details for top projects by cost, geography and spending category. The data link back to Onvia’s Recovery.org for more detailed information.

msnbc.com studio-development-team manager Jim Ray said:

msnbc.com’s stimulus tracker lets consumers track billions of dollars of recovery-act contracts with a visually rich map at the national, state and county level. We’ll continue to expand on our data to include the recently released data from the federal government, as well as new layers of relevant data over the coming weeks and months, until all of the recovery-act money has been spent.

And Onvia CEO Mike Pickett added:

This partnership with msnbc.com is an incredible opportunity to provide a meaningful context to our recovery project data. One goal of this partnership is to make stimulus-spending information available to everyone, especially the businesses that will benefit from this growing market.
