Contest Timeline

the M.App Exchange and do not need to be submitted.
The winner will be announced on May 15, 2019 and will receive a $500 USD Virtual Visa reward card!

Judging Criteria

  1. Title — Your title needs to reflect the data so the user immediately knows what your Analyzer View is about
  2. Creativity — Use different types of graphs and charts and explore different ways the data can be displayed to give the user a complete interactive and valuable experience
  3. Aesthetics — Use appropriate spacing between graphs, fonts, and color combinations to make the View easy to understand, pleasant to look at, and of course to get as much information from the map as quickly and easily as possible.
