Moonshadow Featured in The Economist

Moonshadow’s Eimar Boesjes (COO/CTO) was a featured speaker at last month’s VISUALIZED.io conference in London, presenting examples of Moonshadow’s latest big data visualizations.

In recent years, the percentage of young voters that are politically active has jumped, doubling, even quadrupling in some states . These new voters grew up in the age of the internet, and often have vast resources to inform themselves and each other, using social media and new online tools.

Big Data + Open Government = Big Opportunity

Government agencies are releasing data in quantities never seen before. At the federal level the Census, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the EPA, the CDC, the Weather Bureau, the USGS and dozens of other agencies are releasing hundreds of millions of records annually, each. State and local government agencies are following suit. Private industry, as well, is making data more accessible than ever before. Just think about the map and image data that is available through Google Maps, Bing Maps or OpenStreetMaps. Inexpensive access to Big Data will take the availability of information to the next level.
