Data Challenge

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2014 WINNERS!

Thank you to everyone who submitted entries into the 2014 Divvy Data Challenge, and congratulations to our winners! Judges had the difficult task of deciding between 99 insightful entries, all of which are shared below.

Jessica Baker's fun and easy to understand infographic was chosen as the Best Overall Visualization because it successfully communicates a broad range of useful and insightful information in an aesthetically pleasing way. It also provides context to Divvy's usage patterns as a distinctly Chicago transit system.

Matthew Shaxted's winning visualization turns Divvy's trips into a bouncing, interactive map. The trips are clearly displayed in a visually appealing and entertaining manner.

Honorable Mentions:

Taylor Blackburn and Laura Ettedgui's Divvy city infographic displays a wealth of Divvy data in comprehensive way, while still remaining easy to understand, and aesthetically pleasing to view.

Honorable Mentions:

Rodney Louie's insightful report provides intelligent, helpful and even surprising facts from the trip data.

Honorable Mentions:

Serendivvity and Sound of Divvy were both so creative, we couldn't pick just one winner! Serendivvity, created by Alex Killough, Sabella Flagg, Craig Clark, Stephen Menton & Theresa Stewart, shares ridership data in the style of a dating site, allowing exploration by romantic interest and neighborhood. Sound of Divvy, created by Marc Tagala, Hong Chueng & Katsunori Okada of Team Magnani, lets the data speak for itself, by allowing you to listen to travel patterns.

Honorable Mention:

And thank you to all our other wonderful entrants!
