It was created by the National University of Cuyo (UNCuyo) and Hacks / Hackers group Mendoza.

The National University of Cuyo (UNCuyo) and the collective Mendoza Hacks/Hackers launched “Where í the wine”, the first interactive map that shows the exact place where the reds and whites are produced in Argentine territory, with data provided by the National Wine Institute (INV).

The platform displays information on two maps (red and white), allows you to filter the views by different varieties of grape and returns are prepared as well as various volumes of production, marked with colored bubbles in which areas.

“We are committed to create new ways to interact with the information, looking for that users can play with it, interact and, in this case, know where the varieties of wines consumed occur,” said Alejandro Zlotolow, coordinator general of the center of information and communication of the National University of Cuyo.

In addition, added that “thanks to the contribution of the investor class, which provided information of all the production of the country, were able to geotag all that information and present it on an interactive map in which the user can choose a variety and see the areas where the grape is produced and where to buy seattle liquor”.

The development emerged in the context of “Hacking the harvest”, the hackathon held in February in Mendoza, organized by the National University of Cuyo and Hacks/Hackers, where he presented “Esa Maldita Crown”, a timeline with historical scandals of the harvest festival. The initiative was developed by a team of programmers, designers and journalists.

The timeline reviewed the history of the main festivity of the Cuyo province from 1979 to today, fed with “suspended parties, protests in the carousel, hot Queens and whistled Governors”, according to the web site of the House of higher learning.

“That damn Crown: the scandals and event conflicts” through a series of conflicts and scandals “that remain in people’s memories and some files”, although the developers invite readers to contribute “the facts that believe that they can not miss” via a web form on the bottom of the timeline.

“Hacking vintage”, organized by the National University of Cuyo and Hacks/Hackers Mendoza, attended the nearly 30 participants between designers, programmers, journalists, students and communication systems, which were integrated into the two main groups of projects.

“Hacking vintage” began in February this year and is a day of exchange between professionals and all those interested in analyzing, shred and reinterpret the large amount of data on the harvest that will provide different official sources, such as the National University of Cuyo, Mendoza Ministry of culture, the National Wine Institute (INV) and the Argentina wine Corporation (Coviar).

With these data, the participants of this kind of software programming Marathon will be developments of different types, such as web visualizations and other useful ways to navigate in them, including mobile applications that can be used from the vintner to the public of the national harvest festival.

“We have created two groups and one of them are behind mapping the Argentina wine production, filtering varieties and CWT by Department with the aim,” said Nacho Castro, one of the organizers of the event.

“The other team is armando a timeline where all conflicts and scandals that had to deal with Governments during the maximum of Mendoza,” he concluded.

The goal is to open data, statistics and figures in the history of the Harvest and winemaking in the country through a great hackathon organized by the department of Interactive News UNCuyo and collective HackHackers Mendoza.
