5,430 collisions between January 1st, 2017 and September 15th, 2017 in all of Seattle by Tim Ganter
My co-working space Impact Hub Seattle hosts a members lunch every Thursday where announcements are often made by staff and other members. One day, Gordon Padelford stood up to introduce himself and his organization Seattle Neighborhood Greenways. I thought, “Hey I bet they have some data that could be visualized”. So, I went up to Gordon after the member lunch and asked him. He introduced me to the Executive Director of Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, Cathy Tuttle and we all chatted a bit in their office at The Hub. They pointed me at the Seattle Collisions data on data.seattle.gov. I started looking at the data and chipping away at creating something.
