Walmarts

This code generates the rough maps for this story which were then finished in Illustrator and published using the Daily Graphics rig.

This data process was built iteratively as a one-off and the code may not be easy to repurpose. It's here to document our method!

The scrapers folder is here for posterity, but isn't being used at all.

Requirements

  • Bash
  • PostgreSQL
  • PostGIS

Running it
