hi, i’m mike. i like journalism, politics, outer space, and data visualization. i’m currently employed at NASA/JPL. i used to work at Stamen, interned at the LA Times Data Desk and before that, Grey Area. this is where i store experiments and rough sketches of ideas.
i try my best to provide an accurate picture of the data, but there are always errors when aggregating and working with large datasets: geocoding errors, misspellings, duplicate records, etc. despite my efforts, there are sometimes errors that make their way into the final product. as such, there is no guarantee of 100% accuracy in these visualizations.
