We have more access to large swaths of information than ever, but it's all but useless if it isn't packaged and presented in way we can all understand. This has pushed data visualization into the spotlight, and whether it's helping kids learn, helping city officials make better decisions, or helping to make sense of Miles Davis' massive catalog, this year's finalists and winner offer a good look at the future of this space.
Judges: Andrei Scheinkman, Lisa Strausfeld, Moritz Stefaner
