Projects

This is a list of the main projects I have developed in different wokshops, hackathons and personal collaborations:

Microscope of the Vote is a visualization tool allowing users to understand the 2011 Spanish electoral results in the context of historical electoral results and a range of demographic indicators. This is one of the largest visualisations of open-data and electoral results ever done in Spain. You can investigate electoral results since 1987 and discover how the electoral and socio-economic landscape of Spain has evolved.

Role: Data gathering, refining and analysis. Visual design assist.

The Visual Atlas of Innovation aims to display a set of 7.000 points representing innovation driven small and medium size companies based on their geographical location, activity, a set of R&D indicators and performance metrics. The project was developed during two weeks of June 2011 at Visualizar 11, an international workshop held by Medialab Prado in Madrid.

Role: Data modeling, gathering, refining and analysis. Project management, documentation and public presentation.

TuneMap is a tool for music browsing based on geolocation. It was developed by Guillermo Malón (@Guiller), Juan Pablo Carrascal (@jpcarrascal) and me during the 2012 Barcelona Music Hack Day. It uses Echonest’s and Deezer’s APIs for obtaining artists’ information and music previews. Maps were taken from Open Street Maps, styled by Stamen and and information overlay was provided by Leaflet.

Role: Data modeling, gathering, refining and visual design.

Barcelona Beats tries to capture and visualize in real-time everything that’s happening in the city, letting the user explore the ‘hybrid city’ concept.

Role: Data quality assurance, analysis, documentation and visual design.

London Transport: Good for you, good for the planet aims to change to way traditional intra-city trip planning applications work, by taking into account the trip average pollution, estimated crowd factor and crime data. This way, the planning is not solely focused on “travel distance” (efficiency), but also on travel sustainability and security.

Role: Data analysis,data quality assessment and carbon footprint calculations.

BBVAPlaces shows an alternative approach to predict consumers expenditures based on social success metrics, such as the consumers evaluations in Google Places API. This project has been developed by a heterogeneous group of individuals devoted to gain knowledge of abstract information. BBVAPlaces competes with several other projects at the BBVA Innova Challenge Big Data, an initiative led by the Center of Innovation of BBVA.

Role: Data gathering and modeling. Statistical analysis and visual design.
