The Storefront for Art and Architecture is teaming up with Williamsburg-based mapping startup CartoDB for Insight: A Design and Data Competition.

“This open call for submissions brings together data visualization and the built environment in contemporary culture with the goal of inspiring beautiful, creative, and complex works using CartoDB,” the company said in an announcement. Successful projects will be featured at Storefront’s gallery and will win $500.

CartoDB is a service that allows you to create tremendously interactive maps based on databases. It’s been used to map flood zones and Uber route patterns, and a lot of other things for which there’s open data.
