Graffiti in NYC
Name: Lynn Streja
Number of Teammates Desired: 0-2
Description of Idea:
I would like to map create an app that explores graffiti in New York City. Data is currently available on the location of each graffiti site, the date it was reported, the date when it was cleaned (if it has already been cleaned,) as well as a current status. I think it may be interesting to look at this data on a map and learn more about potential areas where graffiti might be especially problematic, as well as the time required to resolve a graffiti issue. In addition, since a large portion of the graffiti locations reported have not yet been cleaned, it could be interested in using Street View to display the graffiti that prompted the report.
Description of Data:
This graffiti data set is provided by NYC OpenData at (http://nycopendata.socrata.com/Other/Graffiti-Locations/2j99-6h29). The street view information would be acquired through the Google Maps API.
