Downtown Los Angeles Homeless Map

Cartifact has created an animated map showing densities of downtown Los Angeles homeless populations from raw data provided by the LAPD. These two visualizations show density interpolated as an approximate surface and in the form of a heat-map. The population changes are from November 2006 through June 2007. With these animations you can effectively see the flows and circulation of pockets of exclusion.

Thank you Avani for drawing my attention to this map.
