Great stuff Akil! 

My suggestion is along the lines of limiting the cascading menu pain and moving the maps visibility up the page.

In an ideal world, a map interface where a user could select layers for council, board, neighborhood, precinct and zip would probably be the most intuitive. Not sure how easy this is to accomplish though.

Barring that, positioning the menu vertically in a left column, and group the views by borough. Then when a user selects a borough they are shown the menu options for council, board, neighborhood and precinct.

Zip codes would be a separate input field not categorized by borough.

Thanks for sharing this, 

Marc

Hi y'all,

I've been busy finding an apartment and moving but I finally got an update to this site out.

If you load:

You can look at City Council Districts, Community Board Districts, Neighborhoods, Police Precincts, and Zip Codes in a more detailed fashion. I tried to incorporate a lot of the feedback from the list in this page. It's still rough design / ux wise but I'd like to get some feedback as to how it can further be improved. 

Thanks,

Akil

A bit off topic, but possibly relevant to this thread: Does anyone have any 'official' report on how representative the NYPD data is in terms of actual total number of collision events? I know this represents (all?) of the NYPD reported events, but many events go unreported for various reasons... are there any estimates as to what percentage of all events the NYPD data actually represents? A report or just intuition would be useful initially? I'll probably bring this up at the next hacknight as well...

Cheers,

Carson

This is great!

a few first blush ideas:
 1. Add City Council, PD, and Community Board districts. It would be great to start advertising to City Council members and Community Boards that they have another Vision Zero tool.
 2. You should have an email address or some type of device that advertises who you are and that you are looking for suggestions. Maybe, this could be on the about page?
 3. On the about page, link off to the City's Vision Zero map and ask visitors to map their dangerous intersections. < http://visionzero.herokuapp.com >.
 4. If you have a write up on using the data, problems with the data, or another data insights, you should post that to this map.
 5. I would love to be able to go though time and see years or months. I know that is a more difficult request. 

Keep up the good work.

Hey yinz,

I've been messing around with the motor vehicle collision dataset and I just made live an updated dashboard.

You can filter accidents by contributing factor, injuries or deaths, and do some geographic filtering by police precinct, zip code, neighborhood, and community board. (under map controls)

(This filtering is pretty rough right now it's just returning the accidents that fit in a large bounding box then narrowing them down by what intersects the shape, but this could be incorrect for precincts depending on if the accident falls on the border of two precincts there's no way to tell in the data provided which precinct actually got the call.)

Each accident is clickable and you should see a popup with additional details for the accident.

I'd love to get some feedback from you guys as to how this could be extended even more.

You can check it out here:
