Lab 2

The challenge for this week's lab was to create a map using Google Fusion Tables! I used data from Seattle Open Data related to Public Art. This is a heat map created using Google Fusion tables displaying density of public art in Seattle. What is this map missing? What is efficient about this map? What are the problems?

Below is the point data represented in the heatmap above. Click on a point to read more about that art instillation.

The map below displays only the sculptures, because sculptures are my favorite type of public art.
