BigApps BigBuild

We went to a BigBuild event today for the NYCBigApps competition. We met a data scientist there named Ding Li who helped us get a draft of a coldmap we can use to show 311 heating complaint data using Tableau. We’re going to build a more robust version in Leaflet and integrate our own data showing where violations are actually occurring across New York City. It’s going to be really cool to see a visual representation of the 311 data, and hopefully it will allow us to do some targeted outreach to community organizations working in neighborhoods with the highest volume of complaints.
