Jack and the folks at farmsubsidy.org have today released a new service – a map of Sweden that illustrates all of the CAP payments made across the country. More details of how they did it here. They are using information that is available in the public domain to plot the map, showing the cash that’s directed to the different parts of the country. Maps of other countries are also in the pipeline once the data is made available.
The people shining the light into the darker corners of CAP money are a remarkable bunch – with famsubsidy.org and CAP Health Check they turn up all kinds of gems – Benn’s CAP contradictions and money to golf courses among the most intriguing. If only the Commission was willing to be so open and innovative!
