Parking Tickets in New York – Cool Interactive Visualization from NYTimes

Posted on December 3rd, 2008 in Cool Infographics & Data Visualizations - 0 comments

When you have the data of 9,955,441 parking tickets from New York city, what would you do with it?

Of course, you will make a visualization out of it so that anyone can know where the tickets are issued most.

Check out this interactive visualization of parking tickets from NY Times.

One thing they should have done is, instead of showing absolute tickets in each block, they should have showed total tickets in each block vs. total number of cars parked in that block. That way we would know which spots are more prone to tickets when your meter times out.

Nevertheless great work NY Times :)
