This is a map I made of all the city-maintained maple trees in Vancouver’s West End. I used batchgeo.com, a great web service for mapping data to Google Maps.

The data needed minor clean-up. I filtered all maples, eliminated some records that weren’t actually in the West End, and did a concatenation to get full street addresses.
I’m enjoying clicking around to find and identify some of the maples near my apartment by zooming in, selecting satellite view, and then street view.
So this fall, I’ll know what the tree I’m admiring actually is. I’m looking forward to seeing them change colour.

These are the top 100 most common names of pets that were lost in Vancouver from January 1999 to August 2012. I used open data from The City of Vancouver and created a word cloud using Wordle.
Don’t worry! Lots of these pets were found and returned to their owners.
