Seeking Programmer for Data Visualization Project
The FloatingSheep Collective is seeking a contract programmer for an array of interface design, data handling and visualization tasks to work on the DOLLY (Data On Local Life and You) Project. The goal of the DOLLY research project is to develop better access to an array of user-generated geodata including our growing databases of geocoded tweets.
If you are interested in working on this project please send a resume and a brief introduction to your experience with building similar interfaces to Matthew Zook (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In addition to being an academic research project we will also use this data to explore some of the quirkier aspects of life. In the past we’ve used similar user generated data to create a series of popular maps include “The Price of Weed” (featured in WIRED magazine), “The Beer Bellyof America” (covered by in the New York Times and Economist) and the “Beer vs.Church Tweet Map” (featured in a lot of places). We also like zombies.
