Today is a very special day at Datasketch. After years of activism and encouraging access to information through stories with data, we decided to launch our first crowdfunding campaign in order to fund the development of our web apps. To support us here.
Our Datasketch Apps seek to close the gap between those who can process and communicate data and those who can’t, because these tools allow cleaning, analyzing, visualizing and sharing information without the need of an expert in Software Development or Design. The users will be able to browse the apps and select the one that better suits their needs; upload data and share it with other users, clean it, analyze it, visualize it and use our open code.
We now have 12 Data Apps available in English and Spanish: some of them are tools to clean and access data through connections to public data repositories, and others let you create simple charts and maps.
Through this Kickstarter campaign we will be able to reach more users, especially those in developing economies, to empower them to tackle difficult issues. With your support we’ll build 30 more data apps, improve user experience, documentation, and support two new languages: French and Portuguese.
Help us democratize data through this initiative. Donate here.
