Visualizing geo-demographic urban data

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We present two interactive data visualizations of fine-grained demographic information for New York City, US, and Doha, Qatar, obtained using Facebook’s Marketing API. The visualizations make innovative use of treemaps rather than typical checkboxes, to support informed filtering of data and visualization of both “where are people of type X” and “what type of people are in location Y”. The two interactive visualizations aim to both show-case a front-end for census-type information and to demonstrate the richness of Facebook’s advertising data.
