Putting Data to Good Use
Sparkwise is designed to put data to good use. By collecting and comparing metrics and combining those raw numbers with video, audio, text feeds and PDFs–your data becomes a moving story.
Sparkwise was created by a team of world-class technologists, designers, data visualization experts and social impact strategists. It is free, open source and available to anybody.
Based in Berkeley, California, our team of passionate designers, dreamers and developers are always looking for new ways to create a positive impact. Check out their data.
Data visualization gurus, design pioneers, technology strategists and entrepreneurs: the world-changing wisdom of our advisors helps us maintain our spark.
