Buffalo News Work

Portfolio of my data visualizations, maps & apps for the Buffalo News.

Leaflet maps

ParkMap

Using Leaflet, I built a simple map displaying photographs of the recent construction at the park. Pardon us: Niagara Falls viewing areas now under construction

MossAccident

Using the previous Niagara Falls code, I amended the map for a breaking news situation. Three years later, woman charged in 2013 fatal Evans hit-and-run case

D3 Charts

SayYes

To showcase each individual school's college-bound rate, I used a combination of dropdown selection as well as a hover effect to provide context and visibility of the overall trend. More Buffalo grads going to college through Say Yes

NewYorkCollegeSports

Using data from New York colleges, I compared spending per athletic per team as well as showing how each schools' expenditures compares to similar colleges. Area colleges boost spending on sports teams to lure students

Newsroom Tools

I've adapted a couple of fantastic open source programs for the newsroom's use.

Lunchbox

While I created Buffalo News styles, I gained familiarity with the Python microframework, Flask, as well as LESS.

dailygraphics

Similar to the Lunchbox application, this project also taught me how to add new flask commands as well as integrate Google Sheets into D3 code.

Other Projects

Not a map or a graph, these projects are a bit out of the ordinary.

Erie County Fair App

Using the Carla Astudillo's Feats Thru Sheets program, I used IFTTT to pull in reporters' tweets of the Erie County Fair. Erie County Fair food: Live tweets from the scene

Erie County Fair Map

Using the Seattle Times' Twitter Mayday map, I adapted the code to allow News' journalists to share pictures and locations of fair food. Map: Track down tasty and crazy foods at the Erie County Fair
