This submission is a completely new website, targeted just to the citizens of New York, NY, much like Metro Mapper is targeted to Louisville, KY. It was built in only 3 days, using the free and open Your Mapper API and map embedding tools.
Adding More Maps
For this project, we focused on just two maps: Restaurant Inspections and 311 Service Calls. It would be easy to add much of the other data from the NYC Data Mine, once it was formatted correctly, including city events, parking facilities, property values, building permits, points of interest and trees. Each would have their own interactive map, heatmaps, and mobile app.
There is other data that we would also love to add that is not yet public. The Suggest a Dataset and Suggest an App areas of the contest covers most of these, most notably, crime. With crime data, we could create the oft-requested interactive heatmaps, filterable by category.
