Instructions

  • To view the website locally, run python -m http.server 8000 in your cloned version of this repository and point your browser to localhost:8000.

Notes

  • Development status is Alpha
  • This project uses semantic versioning
  • More notes on data and methodology in the About page at about.html
  • This project is funded in part by MRCagney
  • The data wrangling is done with Python in the IPython notebooks in py
