Participants may build a visualization using the human development datasets (hdr.undp.org/data) but are also encouraged to push the boundaries and use data sources (especially including big data) to show an original and thought-provoking illustration of inequality in human development. Although we welcome using many data sources it is important that the data are accurate, current and objective.
