Trying to compare the transparency of central banks via the data visualization of two very different central banks.
Here are some points-
1) The federal bank gives you a huge clutter of charts to choose from and sometimes gives you very difficult to understand charts.
2) The Reserve bank of India choose Business Objects and gives you a proper drilldown kind of graph and tables. ( thats a lot of heavy metal and iron ore China needs from India ;) ;)

You can see the screenshots of the various visualization tools of the New York Fed Reserve Bank and Indian Reserve Bank- if the US Fed is serious about cutting the debt maybe it should start publishing better visuals
