The Changing Contours of Chicago Crime
The Mapbox Blog has published another neat map demonstrating the capabilities of Turf.js. Chicago Crime Data with Turf is an animated heat-map of Chicago crime data since 2001.
The map provides a moving timeline of crime in Chicago over more than a decade. The graph beneath the map shows how Chicago crime during this period has declined. One neat feature of the map is that you can select a date-range on the timeline to loop through the selected time period in the map animation.
