Ghana Levels of Education Data

Ghana Open Data Hackathon

In the beginning there was a hackathon! I personally hate hackathons! The generally represent a lack of sleep 🙂 So when deciding if I was participating in the program, I said no!

One thing led to another and by the end of the day, the hackathon could not start. However, some good ideas had been generated and I decided to participate when I knew we didn’t have to finish the ideas on the same day.

In the end, I discussed with the brain behind the idea. In listening to his vision, I got excited about the coding possibilities. For me it would be a first project with open data.

This dataset was used to develop the application. I had to analyze it and come up with ways to represent the data. At the end, the following was produced.


Now what for me was really cool is the fact that for the first time in my life, I made a choropleth. I really learn alot developing this application. Now when you click on a region, the application shows you the breakdown of the data.
