Naturehood Explorer   about this application

What sets of neighborhoods across 34 large U.S. cities are similar in terms of 'naturalness' and social variables? This parallel coordinates visualization plots 2661 of the study's neighborhoods on 11 dimensions [explained].

To visually explore possible correlations – in effect creating Frankencities – select sections of one or more axes by dragging selection windows over them as illustrated. Selection windows themselves can be dragged. Tapping anywhere on an axis line clears those selections

For example (left), neighborhoods with the lowest average home value. Or (right) the highest percentage of ownership.

Street view and the "Viewed Neighborhoods" collection

Double click a neighborhood from the list on the left to zoom there and get a street view, adding it to your "MyHoods" collection. Once there, move the "pegman" marker on the map to get another street view.
