Colin Copeland Open Data Policing NC Update #4

Alejandra, Dylan, and Colin discussed mapping ideas for the Fayetteville data:

  • Race of stops compared to block demographics by census blocks
    • Determine if percentage is reasonable
    • Color/intensity indicates if area is over/under represented
    • Problem: commuters may not live in that census block
  • For a given stop cause that is typically inappropriate, color blocks based on relative percentage of types over stops in that block
    • Problem: highlights more busy roads
