explaining stories about phenomena like pollution levels and traffic
flows within big cities, the use of social networks in political
campaigns or the financing of cultural institutions.

Each Visualizar edition includes an intensive project development
workshop, a conference, educational activities open to the public and
the exhibition of the developed projects.
