The Challenge: Visualize Your Taxes

by on February 22, 2011

Taxes are probably one of the most stressful and depressing times of year, am I right?  In an attempt to gleam a bit of useful and, dare I say, Interesting information from the annual mundane task, Google has partnered up with Eyebeam to create the “Data Viz Challenge”

To make that happen, we’ve teamed up with Eyebeam, a not-for-profit art and technology center, to host what we’re calling the Data Viz Challenge. Andrew and Louis have built an API to let anyone access the data, so now you can choose how to display it. Could you create a better animated chart? Something in 3D? An interactive website? A physical display somewhere in the real world? We want you to show everyone how data visualization can be a powerful tool for turning information into understanding.

The challenge ends March 27th, 2011 and is open to U.S. entries only, but the lucky winner will get a nice $5,000 prize.
