FARS Visualization Challenge

By January 27, 2017 MDSTPosts

Last week, we held the FARS Dataset Visualization Challenge, where teams were tasked with visualizing more than a decade of fatal traffic accident records to address the question – “What causes drunk driving accidents?”

First prize went to Team Bidiu (Chengyu Dai, Cyrus Anderson, Cupjin Huang, and Wenbo Shen) whose presentation addressed the questions: who is driving drunk, where are they driving, and when do fatal accidents occur? For their first-place finish, each member of Team Bidiu will receive a $25 gift card to Amazon.com! You can view Team Bidiu’s presentation and source code at the team’s Github page.
