Robert Harker's Open Data Information

Make your first Socrata map

This is a very short, less than five minute tutorial on how to make a map from a data set with valid location data.

Seattle, WA's office of emergency services provides a real time feed of E911 calls. These are non-law enforcement calls.

In five minutes you will take a long, long, long table of text data and convert it into a map of the calls received in the last 2 days.

If you can point and click, you can make this map.
