alameda county foreclosures (showing oakland, berkeley, part of hayward), 2007-2011, hexbinned. color scale goes from blue to red, and is determined by absolute number of foreclosures in that bin (max=153). figured since i’m already grouping by census blocks, i might as well use a standard unit of measure. data from OpenOakland, map tiles from Stamen. (d3/polymaps/qgis)
network graph. can’t reveal this dataset yet, but the subject matter is not as pleasant as the colors.
this one’s for my map nerds. i’ve been hacking on a svg-to-map-tile script, and i got polymaps to display some of the tiles it created from a svg. if you’re interested in mapping and what goes on under the hood, please check out the script and shoot me some feedback.
