Data Visualisation Competition with David McCandless
Oh, the fun of Social Media. Last month David McCandless issued a single tweet of some data on blacks students in UK universities that he never got around to doing any visualization on. Now, we have a full-fledged contest regarding it and Postgrad.com.
The competition is based on the data collected by David, and other sources listed within the dataset. However, you are free to mashup the data with any other source you wish, provided the sources are publicly available and cited in your entry to the competition.
Your visualisation can be static, moving or interactive
You can include as little or as much text as you like
It can be as simple as a single chart or a full-blown infographic
If you win, you could get anything from a signed copy of McCandless’s “Information is Beautiful” to a brand new iPad2. Hit their site for all the details.
