On the 9th and 10th of September, OR Technologies Sdn Bhd sent a team of young and wondrous girls called, DataRockstars.my to compete in the Hackathon Government Open Data 2015. The 33 hours long marathon was organized by MAMPU and MDec and it was a wonderful and challenging event. DataRockstars.my was competing against 36 other teams from various strong and highly capable agencies and industries. During the event, DataRockstars.my has to find a way to represent the Dengue Open Data from Ministry of Health and other various sources so that people from around the country would benefit from it. The tool that the team utilized is none other than Tableau, a visual analytics tool for everyone. By using Tableau, the team came up with various applications such as Dengue Hotspots in Malaysia, number of dengue cases and death in Malaysia, location of schools which is near to dengue hotspots and many others. They also integrated Tableau with Google Maps, Twitter, Pinterest and many more.
