Saw this awesome map that shows taxable income per person for each city in Japan going back to 1974! It's in Japanese but here's the basics: Red is more income for the selected year compared to the previous year, blue is less. Have a look around and check out 1992, the year after Japan's bubble burst. vdata.nikkei.com/newsgraphics/

Is anyone else's fees pure nailpolishbot?

Published my first NPM package, jpn-atlas! It's produces pre-simplified and projected city, prefecture and country-level boundary data for Japan. For all 2 of you who are dying to make a municipal choropleth map of Japan but don't know where to find the data, look no more! npmjs.com/package/jpn-atlas

Anyone know if the openvis conf presentations are going to be made public?

Tried out Mapbox GL JS to make a map of poverty rates by 2016 ACS data. Really loved it. Planning on expanding it to show transit stops and what income areas they serve. If you are curious about webmapping now is the time to get into it imo. biskwikman.github.io/projects/

I made a write-up of my process here: medium.com/@e850b85608de/72fa2
