This codebase is for a simple expense visualizer for City Council expense data
from the City of Vancouver.

The City publishes a CSV file containing expenses for 2010.  This repository
contains a Ruby tool to parse this CSV into a series of records.  These
records are imported into a Redis database, where they are displayed by a
small Ruby on Rails project.  All of the visualization is done in Javascript,
using plot.js and jqBarGraph.js.

I created this mostly as an exercise to become familiar with the Rails
framework.  To me, the end result is just a byproduct of the learning process.
