This is the InfoVis 2005 Contest Call for Entries (due July 15); this is the description of the dataset and tasks for this year. For example:
1. Characterize correlations or other patterns among two or more variables in the data. For example:
What products lead to growth in other products or industries? What contributes to companies moving, and what characterizes the moves?
2. Characterize clusters of products, industries, sales, regions, and/or companies. For example:
What geographical areas developed in a similar manner or have similar characteristics? What product combinations tend to be produced by a company, or in a region?
