The City of Chicago's crime dataset provide a robust, up-to-date information on crimes reported in the city. The original data is hosted on the City of Chicago's open data portal and is often used as an example for visualization, data munging, and analysis.
We look forward to host three talented programmers who created different interactive visualizations based on the same data:
• Heather Billings (Chicago Tribune) - Crime in Chicagoland
• Derek Eder (DataMade) - Crime in Chicago
• Erik Van Zanten (DataMade) - crimearound.us
This meetup will host them to discuss their visualization and creative process.
Show & Tell
To continue the spirit of the last meetup, presenters are invited to give a 5-minute show & tell of their recent visualization work. It is a superb opportunity to show your work, get new ideas, and to display your talent. If you'd like to give a brief presentation, please email [masked] with the necessary links, slides, or other materials.
