City of LaGrange
EPA and Smart Cities for All
Community Corps members worked with the City of LaGrange on a EPA USEEIO Model Data project, while building the Smart Cities for all program.
This application allows users to compare economic and environmental impacts of potential industries that they are interested in recruiting to their region.
As a basic preparation for this tool, interns gathered, cleaned, and integrated industry data from census API and developed a user-interface, which allows users to sort this data by various factors for multiple regions.
A big part of developing this tool was centered on creating multiple estimation techniques to fill-out the non-reported blank data. Another big part of this project was focused on developing multiple visualization widgets such as tables, bar charts and bubble charts, which helped facilitate the comparison on the economic and environmental data.
