BBVA's Big Data technology and CartoDB have joined together to analyze and visualize the economic impact of the Mobile World Congress of Barcelona.
This week, Barcelona is once again the world capital of mobility with the Mobile World Congress. Data show once again the importance of this event: between 25 and 28 February, it is estimated that over 70,000 people from 200 countries will contact 15,000 stands. What economic impact will this impressive movement of visitors have?
BBVA and CartoDB have prepared a visualization of the impact caused by the 2012 edition of this event, using the number of credit card transactions made in Barcelona by citizens and visitors to one of the world's largest mobility fairs.
