ALPHAMAPS – previously piloted under the name of “Euromaps” – was one of the 2019 EU Datathon finalists and distinguished itself with its mission to turn EU open data into instant geopolitical insights to inform policymaking through innovative data visualisation, automated data analysis, storytelling and social media techniques.
SYGMA TECH (formerly GOLWA) has turned the data mapping prototype into a full-scale digital service, pushing the boundaries of data visualisation further and scaling the maps production process to make open data insights as available and wide ranging as possible.
“Under its new name, ALPHAMAPS, the project keeps its original European heritage, while also opening up its mission to a more universal outlook”, says Gregory Ruessmann, founder and CEO of SYGMA TECH. “Our objective is to bring our open data insights to all policy fields for which historical datasets are available.”www.alphamaps.com
The annual EU Datathon competition served as a catalyst for ALPHAMAPS’ development (piloted under the name of “Euromaps”) and illustrated both the vast amounts of open data the EU makes available and the need to make these more accessible and extract from them actionable insights for all policy stakeholders.
