This project is one of a number of visualization tools being investigated to communcate policy issues in new formats. This time series intends to display how the change in polices have allowed more Low Power FM stations to be established. Additional projects were developed in conjunction with this one:
- Data are stored in a cartoDB table
- /data directory also contains a copy of the source data in GeoJSON format (WGS 84) lpfm_points.geojson
