World Data Viz Challenge 2019 Barcelona-KobeDIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
World Data Viz Challenge 2019 Barcelona-Kobe is a city-based open data visualization competition organised by the twinned cities of Barcelona and Kobe. Like the first edition in 2018, winners are selected from both cities to present their visualisation projects at a public Smart City Expo World Congress side-event. Visualizations must focus on improving urban issues and policies. This year, climate emergency has been given a special mention. Presentations by Barcelona and Kobe secondary schools will also be included, as examples of introducing and promoting data visualisation in obligatory education. Barcelona City Council launched its project Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge 2 years ago.
