We explored several sources of additional local data: Community Commons, MAP (Making Action Possible), Arizona Indicators Project, DataTucson, Google Maps,etc.
We decided to provide an information resource regarding access to Farmer’s Markets in relation to census poverty data and food deserts
Using Community Commons (www.communitycommons.org), CitySDK API, and Google Maps, we were able to acquire the data and map the density and proximity of low income households to local farmer's markets and food deserts.
From the mapped data, we can determine if farmer’s markets are strategically located in proximity to density of population in poverty
We also worked on an interface to streamline ability to add local data layers and contextual information to the CitySDK data.
