Visualizing Global Marathon
In 2011, Visualizing and GE held 24-hour data visualization Marathons in five cities across the globe — Sydney, Australia; São Paulo, Brazil; New York, USA; London, UK; and Berlin, Germany — and this past March brought the experience to Delhi, India. For 2012, we’re expanding the opportunity for students everywhere.
We’ve launched the Visualizing Global Marathon, a worldwide weekend-long dive into data visualization. With more than $10,000 in prizes, students can participate in one of two ways: virtually or at one of our meetups hosted by partner universities, art+tech hubs, and other venues around the world. Throughout the weekend, we’ll have workshops by data viz rockstars, games, mini-challenges and an assortment of activities for students to connect and collaborate.
We’re excited to bring the global student design community together to use data + design to tackle some of the world’s most complex issues. For additional details and to register, click here.
