Hubway Data Visualization Challenge Award Ceremony
April 28, 2017 at 6:00 pm–9:00 pmFree
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
Join us to celebrate the winners of the Hubway Data Visualization Challenge. Winning entries that brought Hubway’s trip data to life will be present via a visual display. Interact and manipulate the work of submissions and finalists and learn the reasons the winners were selected.
More about the Hubway Data Visualization Challenge: In 2012, after Hubway’s first year of operations, we held our first Data Visualization Challenge. The last 5 years have seen Hubway triple in size and much has changed in terms of access, availability, routes, and system usage. Hubway trip data is now released publicly each month.
Where do Hubway users ride? When do they ride? How far do they go? Which stations are most popular? On what days of the week are most rides taken? How do user patterns differ between members and casual riders? How does weather affect usage? These and many other questions can be answered by the ride data.
How to Enter:
CLOSED ON APRIL 10
Access our Hubway System Data to find metrics on all trips taken – including trip duration, start and stop time, station name, and user type (casual or member) – to inform your visualizations and other creative projects.
Categories and Prizes:
Entries will be considered for six different categories. Each category will have one winner selected.
Over $7,500 worth of prizes will be awarded. The winning entry in each category will receive this package worth over $1,200, including prizes from Microsoft, General Assembly, b.good restaurant, Cleverhood, and $250 cash!
