Data Science

Bicycle Subreddit Network Map

Specializing in R, the standard in open source statistics, AppUp can find patterns, relationships, and better help you segment your data.

Visualizing the data helps communicate relationships, importance, patterns, and more. Analysis allows for creating forcasts and predictions as well as determine what factors have importance and what should be visualized. Interactive modeling allows for calculating permutations from factor values to find the key groupings.

Web Development

PLYL.ST

Throught the years our toolbox has grown and now includes technology such as PHP, NodeJS, Bootstrap, Websockets, and others. Each technology allows for a different approach to a problem, and I have even used R (stats language) to generate a static CSS ruleset for a webapp.

Web based applications have been the current trend, and leveraging realtime communication through web sockets makes you feel like you were using a desktop application.

Subreddit Analysis Tableau

Subreddit Analysis

There was a lot of data to link in this analysis. I started by grouping similar subreddits and used Tableau for my intitial exploratory analysis. For the author's age I wanted to show the author's age at the time of submission, so I made a calculated field that returned the difference in the date of the author and the date of the submission.

Comparing polical subreddits needed context, which is why the grouping of all other subreddits and subreddits that commonly have throwaway accounts were needed. [read more...]

Gas Tax Myth Tableau

Gas Tax Myth

Created this from the 2011-2013 ODOT data because someone was complaining about cyclists not paying the gas tax where they lived (Portland). Taking into account the damage (1/9,600 the damage of a car, and roads cost a pretty penny to repair) and that many cyclists have cars if not at least a license, (89%) it became clear that cyclists have been subsidizing motorists in Portland.

Police Targeted Neighborhoods Tableau

Police Targeted Neighborhoods

Data comes from the 2012 Minneapolis ALPR data inside the date range August 30th to November 29th. For readability's sake any coordinates with fewer than 5 pings were removed. Circumfrences increase starting at 51 pings, red is 100 pings, and overlaps are from coordinates very close to each other. The overlap is prevelant in the bottom right with the values 100+80+76+54+9 = 319. I plan on doing a traditional heatmap as well using Google Maps to interactively explore if there is enough interest.
