We’re looking for some programers to visualize crime data and present it at our booth at the San Diego Magazine Big Ideas Party on Jan 21. The Data Library was one of the 25 Big Ideas covered in their January issue, so they’d like us to have a presentation at the party.

I’d like to have an interactive display, probably using D3, that shows a crime hot spot map for the region, as well as a collection of time-based Rhythm maps for selected areas. A visitor to the booth could select a neighborhood or city, see the hot spots in that area, and see how the crime incidents change in that area over time.

So, we’ll need a Python programmer for the server side ( Pandas for analysis, Flask or similar for the server ) and Javascript person for the front end. Someone with solid visual design skills would be a plus.

You’ll get a ticket to the party on the 21st, to share in the glory, get free food, and do some high-quality hobnobbing.

If you are interested, send me an email, with a link to your Github/Bitbucket/etc account or portfolio, to eric@sandiegodata.org. We can use any number of volunteers, but I only have three free tickets.
