Open Data Delaware’s weekly Code & Coffee, held Saturday mornings at Brandywine Hundred Library, took on a special project for the Sept. 23 National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH): The group took the library’s own open data and used it to learn data visualization.

Data visualization is, simply put, data that is made legible in visual formats. Charts, graphs and especially maps are crucial to civic tech, where raw data needs to be made accessible to the community.
Interested in learning how to do it? Ryan Harrington, Code & Coffee organizer, shared a detailed breakdown of what they learned Saturday on his blog.
