Still Maps

I design D.C. maps utilizing datasets and feature layers from DC and US open data portals

Transit-Shed Maps for Potential Amazon HQ2 Sites

Transit-Shed Maps for Potential Amazon HQ2 Sites

I recreated these maps from the Office of Planning's transit-shed geodatabase to align with the color scheme and design of DC's official for Amazon's second Headquarters | They are located on the  #ObviouslyDC website.

Layers: Real Estate Project Portfolio (Polygons) from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development; Affordable Housing Projects; Great Streets Corridors and Small Business Grantees; Metro Lines and Stops; Ward Boundaries. Utilizing the Common Owner polygon layer, I created the DMPED Real Estate polygons in ArcMap Desktop.

This map - plotted on 42"x60" paper - is currently displayed in four offices and conference rooms in the John A. Wilson building.

Tech Lady Hackathon #5

Tech Lady Hackathon #5

I created these 12" x 18" posters for our 2017 Tech Lady Hackathon leaders and volunteers.

Layers: DC Boundary, DC Metro-Area Roads, Washington Post (location of TLH #5)

Unemployment by Census Tract

Unemployment by Census Tract

In an effort to figure out where the city should implement prospective resources (small business grants, grocery stores, etc.) without over-focusing on ward boundaries, I joined 2015 Unemployment data from the American Communities Survey with the 2010 Census Tract shapefile. This map shows Census tracts with unemployment at or greater than 10 percent. The darker shades are upward towards 30 - 50 percent, some locations reaching far beyond the wards east of the River | Neighborhood Prosperity Fund

Projects Along DC's Waterways

Projects Along DC's Waterways

The Fire and EMS Department wanted to assess real estate projects near DC's major waterways, so I used the "buffer" geoprocessing tool in ArcMap Desktop to create a layer for DC Government projects that fell within a 1/2 mile of the Anacostia and Potomac rivers. Utilizing the Common Owner polygon layer, I created the DMPED Real Estate polygons in ArcMap Desktop.
