DealMonitor is a simple data visualization tool that captures deal activity across countries. I have chosen to focus on M&A, IPO, equity and debt financing activity as indicated by the signifant developments API. I use the last 1,000 high significant developments and filter through the topic and country codes to distribute deal activity into country buckets and represent them in a tree map.

At this time, the app filters out potential duplicate records by analyzing unique significant development IDs only. Possible improvements include:

  • give user the choice of specific countries and deal types
  • poll news feed periodically for smaller chunks to update tree map
  • query “less” significant news items for more activity

Credits go to protovis and flare libraries for making the visualization possible.

Using the following TRKD API's:
  • Market-wide Significant Developments Updates
