When we started the Viz.sg site one and a half years ago, it was a showcase for our Singapore-based visualizations that we had written.
It morphed into a site where we think the visualizations are also genuinely useful to Singaporeans if they need to find out certain information. And then, one final evolution: A curation of excellent data visualizations on Singapore.
Setting up a business in a housing subzone and want to know what the population is like? Interested in getting up-to-date and historical information about dengue cases in Singapore? Wondering where are all the taxis at your current location and time? Want a data repository and timeline of all MRT breakdowns?
You can find the answers to these questions on the site and lots more as we link to and showcase some of the best visualizations on Singapore.
We’re not affiliated with the government in any way – this is an entirely ground-up project initiative.
The idea: A free repository of visualizations on Singapore by Singaporeans. Available for anyone to use. Students, businesses, civil servants, general public.
Coded with love, one dataset at a time.
The old website structure wasn’t cutting it, and so it was time for a redesign of the website, where we could easily add in more data cards and have it sortable and easy to access.
Thus the new viz.sg, with some animation bling and an easier way to categorize and find visualizations.
If you have any visualization on Singapore that you would like to showcase and have a link, please drop me a note at email@example.com. Thanks!
