Trash City: Visualizing the impact of move-in week in Boston

The map below uses code enforcement violations and 311 complaints published by the city of Boston to visualize the accumulation of garbage during move-in week, the seven-day period surrounding Sept. 1.

The map was created for Trash City, a web project I created for Boston’s 2017 Open Data Challenge. The site won first place in the data storytelling track, and also received the open source award.
