Chicago Justice Project

Chicago Justice Project has been scraping and geocoding news articles for any mention of crime in Chicago for years. They now aim to compare this data with actual crime data so viewers can assess the accuracy of crime reporting in Chicago. To help with this process, TechTeam created a website with two interactive maps; the choropleth map contains geocoded crime data and the other geocoded news articles, while the other map gives the ability to select specific types of crime.  There is also functionality to generate additional data visualizations to display below the maps.

Team leader: Spencer Miner

Team members: Brad Lee, Shalini Chandar, Andy Ham, Isabella Lee, Mark Nie, Whitney Beamer, Jiaqi Gao, Lilly Hackworth
