Want to learn which destination is best suited for your next holidays? Go on and visit the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Occitània.

Two weeks ago was the 3rd edition of the Hackaviz, a data visualisation contest organised every year by the Toulouse Dataviz association. The association provides a dataset and every competitor has ten days to come up with the best story about the data told with graphics. The criteria for the competition are relevance, originality, mastery of visualisation techniques and concision.

This year the dataset was about tourism in Occitanie, a region in the South of France. We participated as a team with my girlfriend, and had good fun playing with Python, D3, JavaScript, HTML and CSS. We are very proud to announce that our creation, Hitchhiker’s Guide to Occitània, received the first price of the competition!
