Bicycle Fatality Data Visualization

Data Visualization

Be careful out there!

Overview

For this project I wanted to bring awareness to drivers on where bicycle deaths in the U.S. happen most. I am a bicycle commuter and am very aware of how dangerous it can be. My hope is that whenever possible more people will choose biking over driving as their primary mode of transportation. But in order to do that we need to provide a safer environment for bicyclists.

Points of Interest

Implemented dynamic D3 data visualization using BeautifulSoup to scrape data from a website and integrated with US geographic JSON file.
