CDRC Data Visualisation Intern, Herwig Scherabon, has been shortlisted for two categories in the KANTAR Information is Beautiful Awards. The visualisations which Herwig developed, whilst studying for an MDes in Graphic Design at Glasgow School of Art, have been nominated for awards in the ‘Data Visualisation’ and ‘Interactive Visualisation’ Categories.
The Affordability Explorer is an interactive app that maps data about the housing affordability of 584 cities. The main intention is to inform about relation between house price, income and affordability.
Income Inequality in Los Angeles and Chicago
The two large prints (150x75cm) are visualizations of income inequality in Los Angeles and Chicago. The images are abstract diagrams of these cities and show a high resolution matrix of blocks. The height of these blocks corresponds to the income in the respective output area.
Herwig is currently completing an internship at the CDRC and Leeds Institute for Data Analytics. We will be sharing more of his visualisations over the coming months.
