Data Visualization Open Build Session at Mapbox SF
#VizRisk is a four-part challenge to explore how maps and visualization techniques can help citizens and governments better understand and use data on natural hazards, exposure, and vulnerability. The challenge runs May 15 - July 15 and is open to participants around the world. Learn more at https://understandrisk.org/vizrisk and sign up for challenge updates.
During the challenge, Mapbox is hosting open build sessions and webinars with Challenge partners. These are opportunities to join fellow dataviz builders, map makers, data scientists, and developers to share ideas, questions, and feedback. Dig into the risk datasets, do some creative brainstorming, learn about dataviz tools, and get started on building an incredible Challenge project.
