You can get cash if you get wet and wild with urban water data.
Visualizing.org, a data design website, and a Traverse City, Mich.-based news organization specializing in global water issues called Circle of Blue teamed up for the World Water Day data visualization challenge. They’re asking for people to visualize urban water issues caused by the mass migration of rural residents to urban areas and a lack of city planning.
The organizations want data to tell that story and hope to glean the water information and new ways to visualize it from data designers and experts.
The contest launched Feb. 21 and runs until March 15. The winner gets $5,000 and will be announced on World Water Day, March 22.
