Alex and I will be at this weekend’s Reinvent Green Hackathon in New York City to help attendees make maps and data visualizations. In preparation we have rendered several of the suggested datasets from the New York City open data portal.
Alex and I will be available for questions and hands on help during the hackathon’s “office hours” on Saturday morning and throughout the weekend. If you have any questions before then, you can find me on Twitter at @ian_villeda.
