Datathon Submission Guidelines
The Datathon takes resiliency and COVID-19 data and overlays a view of other socioeconomic factors and demographic data. Participants will create and present solutions to the response efforts and how we can best prepare for future outbreaks. Participating customers and partners should submit applications that allow city officials to visualize the following:
- The situation on COVID-19 for world cities in a regional or global context;
- The actions and policies that cities are taking as a response to COVID-19, mapping the response geographically, by action type, policy area or other criteria;
- The role of demographic factors like population density in the spread of COVID-19 in cities; and
- How cities can use data and analytics to plan for resiliency against future crises.
The applications can also include: city vulnerability parameters; a mapping of city air pollution sources and impacts; peer city comparisons, including similar city characteristics, such as population and economic metrics; and the impact of COVID-19 on mobility, as well as any other relevant parameters.
The result should be an application that helps cities see the interactions between these parameters and variables, with visuals including maps, lists and charts to best present the data. Semifinalists (3-5 of the submissions) will be selected on how well their application addresses a business need, its uniqueness and features, its value proposition, its simplicity and ease of use, as well as its clarity and layout.
