New York’s Data Ecosystem, Visualized
A dizzying new graph visualization displays the breadth of New York City’s more than 1100 public data offerings. Broken down into categories such as environment, social services and transportation, the visualization also shows which datasets are original releases and which have been derived by users in New York’s thriving open data community. The visualization was created using a “dataset of datasets” provided by Socrata, the open data software company, whose platform houses the city’s open data. The visualization’s creator, Chris Whong, is a Data Solutions Architect at Socrata.
