Poderopedia Plug & Play Platform is a free open source software (see License) developed by the Poderomedia Foundation, thanks to the generous support of a Knight News Challenge 2011 grant by the Knight Foundation, a Startup Chile 2012 grant and a 2013 fellowship grant by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), to: a) Develop Poderopedia.org, a collaborative data journalism website that maps who is who in politics and business, and... b) Develop the Plug & Play Platform and release it for anyone to use it.

You can fork this project and deploy it with your own modifications. Please see the License file for details.
