Georgetown Co-Sponsors COVID-19 Data Visualization Challenge


A robust response to the COVID-19 pandemic requires data and keen analysis. Play a role in the response by creating a COVID-19-focused data visualization and sharing with the global health and data visualization communities. Everyone can participate in this Challenge (new window), with separate tracks for students and professionals. Submissions from each track are judged separately and prizes awarded for each track.

The Pandemic Data Room (new window) is a comprehensive global COVID-19 data repository created by a consortium of partners and led by QED Group to improve understanding of the impact of physical distancing policies on social behavior, disease rates, hospital utilization, and local/national economies. This initiative strives to generate insights that could lead to a better understanding of impact of physical distancing and the outbreak. We aim to bring amazing talent to work on the data and generate insights that can benefit the global community’s work to understand and control the spread of this pandemic.
