Dallas has always had a hard time with data. We have a few tools we love using when we need information on anything Dallas related. Here’s a list:
https://themap.net: We freakin love this website. “In August, 33-year-old consultant Robert Mundinger launched a project he’s been working on in his free time. It’s called TheMap. It’s an open-source, interactive web portal that allows users to access an array of data sets that can help people better understand all sorts of things about Dallas. The data sets can be used to generate maps. It’s all exportable.” Source: Dallas Observer
For our daily crime news we turn to a couple social media accounts based right here in Dallas. Smash Da Topic Breaking News and Dallas Texas TV seem to be at EVERY incident that happens in Dallas before any local news stations catch wind.
We included a good amount of direct sources for any info you might need right in our menu under “Info & Resources” as well.
Go check out themap.net tho! We promise you’re gonna learn something about your city you didn’t know.
