Trying to compare the transparency of central banks via the data visualization of two very different central banks.
One is Reserve Bank of India and the other is Federal Reserve Bank of New York
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
