NYTimes Visualises Data

A Year of Parking Tickets

With data from New York City Department of Finance and Department of City Planning, Matthew Bloch and Amanda Cox visualised data of numbers of parking tickets issued in New York City on Google Map (Bloch & Coxa, 2008). The map is interactive and locates 9,955,441 parking tickets issued by New York City agencies between July 2007 and June 2008. 13% of the tickets could not be located. 

Matthew Bloch, Amanda Cox, Jo Craven McGinty and Kevin Quealy, also on Google Map, created an interactive map which examines the 2009 Netflix rental patterns, neighborhood by neighborhood, in a dozen U.S. cities, illustrating patterns of titles within each city (Bloch, Cox, McGinty Quealy, 2010).
