LASER PULSE in collaboration with Purdue University, the University of Notre Dame, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, QED, The Center for Global Data Visualization (CGDV), Data Elevates, Tableau, and USAID-Colombia invite you to participate in a data visualization hackathon. This event will bring together teams of participants from Colombia and Indiana to demonstrate the power of open data for benefiting public knowledge and policy. Teams will assess, analyze and visualize data and present to an audience to communicate a recommendation, story, or new idea through data visualization. This allows for better decision-making and more varied solutions to problems that span a wide range of global development challenges, such as the Venezuelan Migration Issue facing Colombia.
This event is open to undergraduates and graduate students at the University of Notre Dame and Purdue University, as well as Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad de Antioquia, and Universidad del Norte. Contestants will compete as teams of 2-4 students, with a maximum of 1 non-student member on each team.
Registration will close on Feb. 27.
