What it does
It builds data on top of a geographical map and allows user to interact with both two and three dimensions.
How I built it

Challenges I ran into
I ran into challenges working with the large government data sets.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Creating a wonderful product that is useful and entertaining.
What I learned
Ask for criticism and suggestions, build for the users and never stop iterating.
