This is wobbling to market. Crime analysis tools: prototypes built on open data. The "strive" was for great presentation fast, slicing a lot of data in many useful ways. I started with SVG - and still use it for conventional charts. A lot of the data is presented on a map. In January, I elected to dispense with Google Maps and put the whole thing on a Babylon Canvas. I already felt late so it has been an intense period. Images are below and you can use it at https://sanfrancisco.ca.illuminated.city, https://chicago.il.illuminated.city and https://boston.ma.illuminated.city. The 3d part is called "geo-location". (You may need to sit and the landing page for a few counts before trying to navigate.) Thank you all for making Babylon. It has changed my life. Also, a shout out to JohnK for suggesting SPS, which have served me well. Comments, suggestions, conversation all welcome. Notes: ~ I applied scene.pick to allow the user to enumerate details of crimes in a specific area. ~ Chicago is mammoth, with about 400K crime records and a bazillion hexagons, but it still works Image 1: Assault and Battery in San Francisco for the past three years. Image 2: Theft from motor vehicle. Color indicates increase/decrease; elevation indicates current level
Last week, I discovered that real-time aircraft flight data is available through an open API. Two, in fact. Already having a city, I decided show overflights. I put in a five-minute delay to permit me to smooth the data but this is almost real-time. Video shows FedeX coming into SFO over San Francisco. This is not very zoomy but it feels signficant. I am not entirely sure what to do with it. http://www.brianbutton.com/babylon/MonoPlane.mp4 Airplane model was built out of cardboard, dowels, plywood and rubber bands. https://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#H3Z6J1#7
