If you’re a weather visionary and/or data scientist looking for a noble way to spend your summer, consider the Climate Crush – a weather data visualization contest with a cash prize. Weather Analytics opens its data and invites participants to create a visualization – infographic, dynamic interface, widget, app, anything – using the weather data (as well as any other open data sources). You will employ your favorite analytics and visualization tool to build your solution. Then you host the project on your blog or website and submit a link to your solution by July 31st. Prizes will be awarded to top three entries – $5000 for first place, $1000 for second, and $500 for third.
Choose from one of the three data sets to create your visualization – Global Contrast, Hometown Glory, or Designing in the Rain. You can download the data HERE and also read the contest rules and FAQ. Have fun!
