The Pleasant Places to Live

In Feb 2014, I wrote a blog post that included a visualization of the number of pleasant days to expect each year in different regions of the continental United States. This is the source for that project that includes both the data munging code (in Go) and the visualization code (in TypeScript/SCSS).

The Pleasant Places to Live

The original can still be found at http://www.kellegous.com/j/2014/02/03/pleasant-places/.

Requirements

The included Makefile assumes you are on a unix-y system and I have made no attempt to make this work on windows.

Getting Started

The Makefile is intended to bootstrap the project with everything needed to load and develop the visualization. Note that the first time you run make, A LOT (about 1.8G) of data will be downloaded from NOAA ftp sites.

$ git clone https://github.com/kellegous/pleasant-places.git

$ cd pleasant-places

$ make serve

When downloading and building completes, the visualization will be available in your browser at http://localhost:4020/.

Questions

I'm happy to try to answer questions about the code or the project. Feel free to email me at [email protected].
