Azavea and OpenDataPhilly are pleased to announce the winners of the OpenDataPhilly Visualization Contest. Visualizations that represent creative and visually impactful uses of Philadelphia’s Open data were selected to be featured on the new OpenDataPhilly website (soon to be launched). OpenDataPhilly.org has undergone a redesign thanks in part to grant funding from the Knight Foundation. In anticipation of the relaunch of Philadelphia’s newly designed data portal, Azavea invited submissions of visualizations of Philadelphia’s open data. The OpenDataPhilly Visualization Contest collected submissions from designers, data scientists, developers and anyone who enjoys exploring and visualizing open data. Submitted data visualizations utilized data sets shared on OpenDataPhilly.org and were both static and interactive including maps, infographics, charts and more. Prizes included $500 in Amazon gift cards divided among winners.
