HURUmap / Wazimap helps to answer where (through geographies) and what (through the data tables) in regards to data collected. To improve how we help users find the stories behind the data, we should look to the five Ws which are some of the questions whose answers are considered basic in information gathering or problem solving;

  • Who was involved?
  • What happened?
  • When did it take place?
  • Where did it take place?
  • Why did that happen?

Entity data, a person or organisation, help to answer the question of who is involved. We should therefore look at how we can provide this data/functionality on HURUmap.


To achieve this, we will look to start with politician data as they are the representatives/leaders of administrative boundaries. To achieve this, we will:

  • Create a schema for entity data modelling on FollowTheMoney
  • Scrape initial politician data for Kenya
  • Create a template for displaying this information
  • Document how to add entity data

Shouldn't this be done in CodeForAfrica/HURUmap @phillipahereza?
