Best New Mashups: Using BuzzData to Find the Best Cities in the World

Wendell Santos, June 22nd, 2012

BuzzDataOccasionally we’ll get a batch of submissions that all use an API to answer the same question. In the last couple of weeks we’ve seen a handful of mashups using the BuzzData API to help determine the cities with the best quality of living. These mashups were submissions for the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) 2012 Best City Contest organized by BuzzData. The goal was to create the best visualization and determine where is the best city to live.
