The Rat Density Map of New York

A new interactive map locates the areas of New York with the biggest rodent problems. The Rodent Density Map shows the locations which have received the most 311 complaints about rodents from 2013 to 2018.

The map ranks areas of New York based on the number and proximity of 311 rodent complaints. Areas are ranked from two to nine, with nine being the worst ranking. The map reveals that rats seem to prefer areas with food-related businesses, older buildings and with parks & recreation areas. GeoBi has also analyzed the 311 rodent complaints data to explore the different types of complaint and to see what types of territory rodents prefer. You can read more about their analysis here.
