Db Nyc

Description

Db NYC is a visualization of the noise pollution in New York City. The app was created using Ruby on Rails and maps the location of 311 noise complaints, emergency services, social check-ins, and social venue reviews to create a dynamic heat-map of noise broken down over a 24 hour period.

Screenshots

Features

  • Manipulates a Postgres database with over 200k rows of data.
  • Bootstrap for responsive and modular design.
