Data plays a crucial role in today’s society, and over 80% of it has a location connection. While there is a huge amount of public data available, data rendering and display is still a challenge. Large data sets typically require time and expertise to process and interpret, making it nearly impossible for the majority of people to make sense of it.
2019 Here Mapathon: Map Your World challenges you to describe briefly what information you would like to visualize on the future map that could be beneficial for you, your community, the environment or our society at large. Once you are selected, you’ll be guided by mentors to generate map(s) using XYZ Studio. The winning projects will receive up to $10,000 US in cash prizes!
