This viz created from the NYC Data Mine's Graffiti dataset shows where the graffiti incidents are occuring around town. Explore the graffiti of New York City by borough and precinct.
About this Viz
Looking borough by precinct across The Big Apple, one can quickly see that there are some differences in how graffiti is handled. For instance, Staten Island has very little graffiti, but the graffiti they do have lingers without cleanup for almost twice the citywide average. On the other side of the spectrum, Manhattan has over 2000 incidents of graffiti, but it is cleaned up in less than 17 days on average.
Statistic charts on the web should really be interactive. Until Tableau Public, that had never been easy. But now, I have a tool with which I can explain large and complex datasets in a clear, simple and engaging way.
