The dissemination of public information by governments and administrations is generally too technical and beyond the reach and understanding of most of the citizens to whom they must be accountable and involve in their participatory processes. Progress in open data policies has sought to reduce this asymmetry, and while this has been achieved in terms of the amount of data disclosed, it has not been so in terms of citizen coverage. We studied the case of budget data and the two main graphic visualization tools intended to close this gap. By means of a questionnaire answered by their managers in 34 Spanish public administrations, we try to find answers to the main questions related to their adoption and use. Political impetus or consensus with technicians, proactivity rather than compliance with transparency regulations, lack of focus when setting a target audience, additional uses to those theoretically expected and governance problems in its operation are the main results obtained.
