Washington, DC, residents don't need census data to tell them what's obvious in their neighborhoods: the city is changing dramatically. But numbers can give us context. They can show us how shifts in population are reshaping the city and can help us prepare for changes to come. In this series, we'll explore recent changes in demographics, schools, housing, crime, and more, using data from NeighborhoodInfo DC to tell the story of our changing city.
Our Changing City is a series of interactive features that explores the changing nature of Washington, DC. Chapters have focused on demographics, schools, housing, and public safety. I directed the art and design of the entire series and designed and developed the housing chapter. The series relies heavily on data visualization, interactive mapping, and original photography. It is a major collaborative project between researchers, writers, desigers, and developers.
