Comparing Health data to engaged SeeClickFix communities

Microsoft Employee Marc Phillips used the SCF API to integrate our data set with Bing Maps.

Aside from looking beautiful you can now compare active SeeClickFix communities to public health data as well as 60 other data sets in the Microsoft Map Apps set.

Cool stuff? Yeah we think so! We strongly believe that the health of our communities is dependent on the willingness of residents to become citizens and speak up and take responsibility for their communities. Does the data proof it? We don't know but we're sure someone will tell us soon enough as our data set grows and these applications expand and refine.

Play around and let us know if you find any fun correlations. Someone should look at the number of food carts to potholes that seems important!

The SeeClickFix map app is called Squeaky Wheels if you are looking for it.
