Data Visualization of Seattle Construction Hotspots

In the winter of 2014 I created a data visualization of Seattle’s “hottest” neighborhoods when it came to the construction of new housing using a program called Tableau. Using methods in Microsoft Excel that I learned in a data journalism course, I filtered down a list of Seattle’s current permitting applications to only view the entries that were approved and that were being used as places of residency. This was my first time telling a visual story with data and the project opened my eyes to the wealth of data sources available in the public domain and the potential stories hiding within them.
