2013 TechCrunch Disrupt winners Enigma have created a pioneering data search and discovery technology structured on top of the broadest collection of public data on the market.
With Labs, Enigma uses their own platform to create informative visualizations to educate and encourage the exploration of information. The latest was an eye-opener.
U.S. Daily Temperature Anomalies 1964-2013 is a visualization of a 50 year period (1964-2013) signifying a clear trend: Since 1964, the proportion of warm and strong warm anomalies has risen from about 42% of the total to almost 67% of the total – an average increase of 0.5% per year.
Enigma and MaintainPR worked together after publishing the visualization and analysis taking advantage of the wider availability of public data, in order to make the topic of climate change more relatable for people. For the coverage we generated, click through the links below.
