I refined the prototype for the NYC Property Extractor web app a bit more with some minor UI / UX changes. The app now only lets the user select an area when they are zoomed into the neighborhood scale (greater than or equal to zoom 16). This limits the amount of data a user may select so that they won’t say be able to select all of Brooklyn and bog down the server or database. Other changes include panning and zooming the map to the area the user selects when they draw a shape or click on a tax lot.

For the content of this story I’m scraping text from my brother’s blog using a Python script that uses the beautiful soup library. The photos and videos he has shared directly with me and generously gave me permission to use. Needless to say there’s an added editorial and curated component to this work from choosing the best photos and checking spelling and grammar. Being comfortable with editing writing from my undergraduate studies in Geography and Urban Studies is definitely helping here!
I’m almost set to do some user-testing, with the intention to get some feedback to improve the next iteration of the project. One last part I’d like to accomplish is for the animated marker to trigger pop-ups on the stationary markers as it passes them. I also have the task of editing and curating my brother’s writing which is another huge undertaking given the detail and length of writing from his blog posts.
The project in its current state can be viewed here, though at this time I have only tested it in the Chrome browser so it may not work in Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
