During the global COVID-19 pandemic, Panoply wants to help make data available to deliver timely and trusted information. Through the lens of data, we can come together to generate insights, analysis and visualizations for those tracking this disease. This is why we've started this data hackathon - to provide a centralized place for data sleuths to hack on data sets related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Panoply is a secure place to store, sync and access all your data and we have built-in compatibility with leading data visualization tools such as Chartio, Tableau, Looker and Mode.
We invite you, to use Panoply in this data hackathon to connect COVID-19 related data sets, query and make discoveries and visualizations that will benefit the global community.
So, get ready to team up, learn, query and bring your ideas to life!
