About LobbyLens

LobbyLens correlates data about Federal Government business over the last 18 months. It shows the connections between government contracts, business details, politician responsiblities, lobbyists, clients of lobbyists and the location of these entities.

LobbyLens was developed at the Australian Government 2.0 hackday GovHack and judged the Best in Show. It went on to win 3rd place (Notable Mashing Achievements category) in the MashupAustralia competition
