The Challenge

Data plays a crucial role in today’s society, and over 80% of it has a location connection. While there is a huge amount of public data available, data rendering and display is still a challenge. Large data sets typically require time and expertise to process and interpret, making it nearly impossible for the majority of people to make sense of it.

HERE has developed a service to help overcome this challenge. With HERE XYZ you can easily
visualize your geospatial data on a map and make sense of it by using images, color codes, and shapes. Simply upload your own or a public geospatial dataset and start designing your map!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to use either your own or publicly
available geospatial datasets to create one or more maps to visualize the information of your choice in a clear and compelling manner. You must generate your map(s) using XYZ Studio and/or the XYZ Hub API. The winning projects will receive up to $10,000 US in cash prizes!
