    When communicating in local communities as well as with Congressional stakeholders the common question always asked is “what’s in it for me?” or “how does that impact my community?”  NASA has publicly accessible data that provides information on jobs, dollars being spent, and likely many other data points that would help in communicating the economic impact that NASA is making across the United States (possibly the world).  The problem is that all these data is located in different places and is delivered in an appealing manner

    Challenge Description:

    Help tell the story of NASA’s economic impact through an app, visualization, or other interactive media.

    Functional Specifications:

    The challenge is open-ended. Be creative. To do this, you might consider one or more of the following:

    • Create a web and/or mobile application that utilizes data to share information about the economic impact that NASA has on 
    • Develop a microsite which highlights one or more areas of significant economic impact - for example, workforce deployment or value of NASA procurements - nationally, or by state.  
    • Develop an interactive map of NASA workforce deployments, procurement spending etc.
