29 Oakland Unified Schools with lead in tap water Data Visualization Project

SmartOakland has joined the Get the Lead Out Coalition (GTLO) by bringing what we can offer to the table, which is technology and data to help solve the problem of lead poisoning in Oakland.

We're starting by creating some simple data visualizations using the information posted by Oakland Unified School District to help create context for people who are new to the topic of lead poisoning and for those who may not know you can find lead by using data to understand where it is located.

For the kids out there checking this out to figure out how to work on your own community inspection projects, check out batchgeo.com and our full page to read more about how we created this simple school location map.  Note that we'll be adding levels of fidelity, meaning more data and visual detail, in coming data visualizations.
