Visualizing the London 2012 Olympic Games

Visualizing the London 2012 Olympic Games


The London 2012 Olympic Games are only weeks away and though London has hosted the Olympics on two past occasions, in 1908 and 1948, this year’s will be remarkable in the unprecedented amount of data that will be collected during the 19 days of competition. What better to do with the wealth of data available for us to jump, dive, and hurl into than to visualize it?

In our latest challenge, Visualizing the London 2012 Olympic Games, we ask you to create a visualization based on any Olympic result of your choosing from past Summer Games. Prizes will be awarded to one static infographic submission and one interactive submission, and for the first time, a People's Choice award will be given. Check out the challenge page for more details and to find suggested data sets.
