datadirectory contains several sources of data. For example, the
data/sv-companiesdirectory contains a
csvof technology companies in the Bay Area between 1945 and 2000. Each directory contains the data plus a
mdfile 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.
