Michal Migurski shows his latest work

  • Jan 11, 2011 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Update, Jan. 10, 2010 | Because of severe weather warning on Tuesday night, we thought we would lose some additional people and we raised the RSVP count. If weather is not so severe, we might be a bit cozy.

Stamen Design has developed a reputation as one of the country's leading interactive design and data visualization studios. Its director of technology, Michal Migurski, will join Hacks/Hackers NYC to talk about his latest project, This Tract, which combines government census data, data visualization tools, map tools and geolocation to better understand the area near where you are.

Come to New Work City on Jan. 11 to talk with Michal about his process, the design (created with designer/developer Craig Mod), the technology and the reasoning for presenting this large, detailed dataset.

Arrive at 6:30 p.m. to socialize over drinks and snacks (no dinner). The talk begins at 7 p.m.

Registration is $5, payable in advance. If the $5 is beyond your budget, please email nyc (at) hackshackers dot com to volunteer in exchange.

Thanks to New Work City for providing space for the meetup.

Separate but related: If you're interested in getting hands-on experience telling stories with data, register for NewsCamp, a one-day workshop organized by Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) in partnership with Hacks/Hackers.

The workshop is Feb. 24 in Raleigh, N.C. Registration is $100 through Feb. 14. Space is limited. To get more details and sign up, go to the NewsCamp page.

    Brilliant to hear about the experiences behind the scenes of Stamen's work like the CrimeSpotting map.
