This is a Django project prepared for the Data Visualization: An Open Brainstorm a Hacks/Hackers event in Pasadena, CA on Dec. 16, 2010.

Maps

The objective is to demonstrate how latimes-pluggablemaps-uscounties and Django’s geospatial extensions can be used to report the news.

The code here creates interactive maps of unemployment data that are the rough equal of the thematic and proportional-symbol maps newspapers have created for years. The data are entirely from the public domain, and the maps are made by employing the OpenLayers library. The geospatial data are drawn the L.A. Times’ first “pluggable map” prototype, latimes-pluggablemaps-uscounties.
