Easy D3 Data Visualizations using Raw: Visualizing Student Debt by State and Year
This tutorial describes a simple way to create stunning data visualizations from the D3.js library using Raw, an online tool. Raw allows you to upload your own datasets and visualize them as a treemap, bubble chart, alluvial diagram, dendogram or circular dendogram, circle packing plot or a binned scatterplot. In this example we use data representing student debt by state and year, and create a data visualization representing the top ten states for 2012 according to data from College Insight. Sample datasets are also included in Raw if you don't have one readily accessible to use.

Urban Climate Project - Climate Change Resources - Esri Climate Resilience App Challenge 2014
For practicing planners, the Urban Climate Project is intended to function as a decision support tool, where cities of similar size, climatic characteristics, development trajectories, or demographic composition can easily locate successful (or unsuccessful) approaches to both mitigation and adaption strategies. For researchers, Open Climate provides access to a curated list of primary and secondary data sets, scientific reports, and analytic tools. It also provides a forum to connect leading ideas with those who can take action through policy and intervention. http://geodesign.newschool.edu/c40cities/ http://gis.newschool.edu This site is a collaboration between Aalborg University, PIIM, the Parsons The New School for Design, and the Urban Climate Change Research Network. This video was submitted for the Esri Climate Resilience App Challenge 2014. For more information, please visit: https://www.hackerleague.org/hackathons/esri-climate-resilience-app-challenge-2014

Mapping Cockroaches and Asthma in NYC: Creating NYC Health Survey Maps using CartoDB
This tutorial walks you through using CartoDB to create a map showing the percent of people reporting seeing a cockroach in their home in the past month with the percent of people reporting ever being told by their doctor that they have asthma. Cockroach droppings are a known asthma trigger (see http://www.cdc.gov/asthma/triggers.html for more). This video covers the basics of Assignment 2, which was to create a choropleth map using a shapefile provided in class and data found through EpiQuery, NYC's brows-able health indicator site. EpiQuery provides both the UHF neighborhood level data for the cockroach sitings as well as the asthma estimates. Sites referenced in this video include: CartoDB - CartoDB.com NYC Interactive Health Data - https://a816-healthpsi.nyc.gov/epiquery/ UHF 34 Neighborhoods file on CartoDB - https://goransoc.cartodb.com/datasets
