Explore: Hampton Roads


Explore: Hampton Roads is a frontend web application sourced by the hercules API.

The project was the Best In Show winner at the fall 2015 Hack to Help Hampton Roads hackathon, organized by Dominion Enterprises & Code for Hampton Roads.
DE donated $15,000 to Code for America to help usher this project into a useful production system.

#The Vision

Explore: Hampton Roads will allow users to view and interact with data specific to their community.
Explore: Hampton Roads will be sourced with School, Census, and Crime data allowing users to..

  • Collect data from different sources into one, easily accessible location
  • See how different data sources interact for deeper insights
  • See a high level analysis and explanation of the data being viewed
  • Interact with the data in an appealing, digestable format

#Current Status

Currently, the Explore: Hampton Roads web application will be sourced with Hampton, VA data only to leverage the Hampton Crime API.
This will allow for the collection and presentation to be worked out with data that is readily available, with other cities to be added in a modular format.
School data has been sourced from the GreatSchools API for the 6 main cities of Hamtpon Roads.
Census data has been gathered manually from the Community Profile for Hampton Roads.
