Inspiration

Initially, we say a beautiful representation of data using d3.js and mapbox. We decided that it would be nice to apply the same concepts to the DC open data project. Through mapbox.js and DC open data, we are able to analyze the position and individual crimes that occurred in Washington D.C. in 2013.

How it works

Our hack takes Washington D.C. crime data and geolocates it to a spot on the map, plots it, categorizes it and makes visualization easy.

Challenges I ran into

Short time-frame to complete hack

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We are most bringing all the elements together in a very short amount of time.

What I learned

Coding in javascript, using Mapbox, analyzing and visualizing geolocation data

What's next for CrimeDC

Making more data sources available for viewing through the framework!
