Visualizing Global Marathon Galleries and Thanks
This past weekend, the Visualizing Global Marathon brought together the global student community for an intense, fun, and thought-provoking event with live talks, tutorials, and Q&A sessions. Over 1000 students from 176 universities and 38 countries across the world interacted on our Live Dashboard and delivered insight and solutions on monitoring disease outbreaks, understanding the global flights network, and contextualizing the 2012 U.S. presidential election. There were Google Hangout broadcasts, a very active #vizmarathon Twitter discussion, awesome photos and more.
Students, working individually or in teams of up to four members, submitted more than 100 data visualizations to be evaluated by an esteemed jury and from which, we’ll award $15,000 in prizes, courtesy of GE. The winners will be announced on December 5.
