Mercamadrid visualization

Visualizing the food flow of the main food hub of Madrid

This project aims to shed some light on Madrid food flows through visualization using data from the most significant food hub in Spain (Mercamadrid) and the second in Europe where a flood of food pass through it every day.

It tries to answer basic questions about our consumption habits, self-sustainability and how food distributes on a daily basis. This project analyzes how production logistics have evolved during the last years because of changes in our supply chain, market behavior, and politics.

My contribution to this project was creating different types of visualizations. One more focused on exploration, where the user can interact and explore the dataset selecting different kinds of food to see how the import/exports of food flow in a period.

The other viz tried to depict certain aspects of how we import/export food such as the longitude and latitudes where the food is produced
