I am working on developing visualization to present/classify list of United States’s largest cities by crime rate based on 2009 statistics. I’ll be leveraging the approved data set owned by NYC OpenData and provided by the Office of the Mayor (OTM). I am working on collecting and sorting the appropriate data set required for the presentation. The main attributes are list of cities, crime rates and crime index ranking.
I am also exploring the style, layout and presentation for the visualization format. Besides styling and layout, I’ll utilize the GIS data for neighborhood labels and information as depicted in New York city map.
