Two weeks ago Mozilla Labs, together with Mozilla Metrics team and the growing Mozilla Research Initiative, announced our first Open Data Visualization Competition. Today, we are excited to release the data sets for this competition!

These data sets come from Mozilla’s own open data program, Test Pilot. Test Pilot is a user research platform that collects structured user data through Firefox. Currently, over 1 million Firefox users from all over the world participate in Test Pilot studies, which aim to explore how people use their web browser and the Internet in general.

For this challenge, data samples from two recent Test Pilot studies have been made available – check out the data sample pages below for a thorough description:

In addition, please note that the submission deadline has been extended from Dec. 5 to Dec. 17th to encourage more participation. Be sure to visit the official Competition page for more general info on dates, judges, and prizes.

Good luck and start hacking!
