LANDSCAPES OF PROFIT :: Interactive

An interactive map / data-viz of all properties that were bought and sold within a two year period in New York City from 2003-01-01 to 2015-05-19. This data was derived from an analysis of NYC's property transaction database, ACRIS, using Docker For Data. The interactive calculates the total profit and a proposed "1% Flip Tax" for a given geographic area in NYC*. You can learn more about the methodology and rationale here and view the working prototype here.

* Staten Island's property transactions are not included in ACRIS.

Updating the CartoCSS

  1. Edit the corresponding files in the mss/ directory
  2. Make sure you have Node.JS installed and then
    cd scripts/ && node concat-cartocss.js
    (uses all core Node modules, no dependencies required)

This will update the app.cartocss module in js/app.cartocss.js.
