Introducing the Data Feed
I often come across awesome datasets that I don’t have time to viz. I wanted a place to collect all the interesting datasets I found so I’ve created a new category for my blog: The Data Feed. Any time I see an fascinating dataset, table on a website, or anything like that, I’ll share it with you guys! Just be sure to let me know if you make something rad with it!
To get it kicked off, Divvy, a bike sharing service in Chicago, released a dataset of their data including:
- Trip start day and time
- Trip end day and time
- Trip start station
- Trip end station
- Rider type (Member or 24-Hour Pass User)
- If a Member trip, it will also include Member’s gender and year of birth
The data already looks really clean and easy to use. They even have latlong for all the different stations! They are running a data visualization contest with this data, so if you are in the Chicago area, you can win some cool stuff. Click here to get the data and view the contest rules.
