Description

  • The data directory contains several sources of data. For example, the data/sv-companies directory contains a csv of technology companies in the Bay Area between 1945 and 2000. Each directory contains the data plus a txt or md file explaining the contents, provenance, and any data transformations I might have made on pre-compiled data. In some cases, these directories may also include an original data source (e.g., GIS shapefiles).
  • Most of the other directories are standard Jekyll files and hierarchy.

Contributions

Contributions to the data are more than welcome. Please submit a pull request or email me data.
