SafeGraph Holiday Datathon: WIN $200!

You’re invited to join our inaugural SafeGraph Holiday Datathon!

SafeGraph’s Holiday Datathon is a virtual datathon where you can work on mini data science projects using SafeGraph data. Our focus for this datathon will be using SafeGraph data to look at interesting trends during the holiday season.

What kind of projects can I work on?
Anything related to the holidays is fair game so get creative! Here are a few sample projects to get the gears turning:

  • Comparison of foot traffic to airports during peak holiday travel times.
  • Using Open Census Data and SafeGraph patterns to look at average household income of people visiting large retailers during Black Friday.
  • A graph of how many places with holiday-related names are in each state.
