“Mushrooms Stealers” vs “Piss Beaches”

“Mushrooms Stealers” vs “Piss Beaches”

The rivalry has been extended for time immemorial: the Navarres accuse their Basques neighbours from stealing their delicious mushrooms. Supposedly, revenge arrives with the summer, when Navarres invade their shores during vacations but don’t spent a penny. The original data belongs to the Report of the Health Status of the Beaches of the Basque Country 2014 and the Hotel Occupancy Survey of the National Statistics Institute of 2005-2014. From these databases, we created, cleaned and worked with Google Drive and Tableau two downloadable datasets with percentage, absolute and geolocated data data presented in the Basque Country and Navarra visualizations. This is a descriptive analysis of national tourism presented in an entertaining way through the topic of "mushrooms stealers” and “piss beaches”, the terms navarres and basques use to name each other. This project was the winner of the data journalism hackathon, an event of 36 hours of journalism, technologies and networking at the XXIII Euskal Encounter.
