There is a new way to measure what matters in New York City! Measure of America and Humantific are delighted to announce the DATA2GO.NYC | Visualization Challenge.
In this challenge we invite specialists in the exploding information design and data visualization fields to use the unique dataset made available through the just launched DATA2GO.NYC website. The goal is to create informative and beautiful visualizations that help to illuminate strengths or challenges in New York City neighborhoods and how they shape the lives, choices, and opportunities of the people who live there.
The focus can be on groups or issues (such as food security, the elderly, or Latino residents), one community district, a set of neighborhoods, a borough, or the city as a whole.
The Dashboards section of DATA2GO.NYC already includes many data visualizations of individual indicators. The goal of this Visualization Challenge is to encourage users to draw connections between different sectors and policy areas and to bring together disparate streams of data for addressing some of the city’s most challenging problems.
