SF Fire Risk Project

URL to Current Prototype:

SF Fire Risk Carto Visualization

This project attempts to model and acquire data from SF OpenData - and other sources - to predict the relative risk of fire in San Francisco’s buildings and public spaces.

The mapping software allows users to type in an address and see fire-related risks and incidences around their area, using predictive modeling driven by data science and data analysis.

This project is modeled after Data Science for Social Good’s (DSSG) Firebird Project in Atlanta, GA. Consultation is occasionally provided by members of the DSSG and former members of the Atlanta project.
