Visualizing Singapore, one dataset at a time

Visualizing Singapore, one dataset at a time

In a world deluged by data, it can sometimes be hard to make sense of all of it.

This is why Visualizing Singapore (viz.sg), a community portal site on data visualizations in Singapore was setup. The aim is to visualize Singapore one dataset at a time, and the hope is to curate different narratives from the ground up. In this talk, Chi-Loong will go through some local data visualizations on topics like elections and economy. You might walk away with insights you never noticed!
