For the second year, my school (EDNA) and Audencia SciencesCom made a partnership to create data visualization using metaphor through photographs. The subject of this year was to communicate about the Loire-Atlantique (French department) using their data. We made two posters by team in order to print a magazine.
We chose two subjects randomly that were the Sport and the Mobility in Loire-Atlantique. We had a database about those subjects. The idea was to find out some interesting data to have something to show to people, a message to deliver using a powerful photograph.
The first poster is about Mobility. It is interesting to show to people that their trip are not just about work but also a lot about spare time. We used pieces of luggage organized into a treemap shape to make people quickly understand the meaning behind the photograph. The bike give the final touch to show the mobility.
The second poster is about Sport. A lot of people think that sport, and even more in the profressional area, is a men stuff. We wanted to show that women are in the game and that in the Multi-Sport field is dominated by them in our department. We had to work about the woman representation in the picture without making a cliché.
Our two posters were released into the Datalogy #2 magazine and also displayed during the Datarama #2 party, an event around the data, organized during the Nantes Digital Week in 2017. The poster about Mobility was published in a Loire-Atlantique magazine.
