Soon after I updated the New Haven homicide map to include the 2017 stats, I thought about how I wanted to visualize more data using maps but due to my lack mapmaking knowledge, I was limited as to what I could do.
I found the amazing Interactive New Haven Neighborhood Map (creator unknown) that not only uses Google My Maps but also features:
- Aldermanic wards
- New Haven City Transformation Plan community meetings
- New Haven Promise Zone
Best of all, I could copy it and use it as a base for my own map! I first want to try it in conjunction with the homicide map and see if I can find any trends or other interesting information. I’ll be updating this post in the future.
