Creative Traffic Analysis Earns Grad Student Recognition

Graduate student Ankit Borkhataria ’17 MSBAPM took third place at the Tableau Student Viz Assignment Competition, which drew more than 100 submissions from 14 countries.

Winners were selected based on creativity, analytical depth, beauty and design and overall score.

“Ankit took a creative approach in wrangling a large data set with over 1 million rows of Montgomery County (Maryland) traffic violation data. The judges loved his choice of using a bold color palette and embedding Twitter feeds from @mcpnews and #mdtraffic,” Tableau posted in its announcement.
