Heat Maps!

March 8, 2013

We have added a new visualization to our beach layer which allows users to view trash accumulation as heat maps. A heat map is a graphical representation of density of latitude and longitude points on a map using 2 or more colours to depict ‘hotspots’. Using this visualization, users can now easily view where trash accumulates on Besant Nagar and Valmiki beaches. The heat maps can be found under Beach Layer >> Pollution Layer >> Trash Accumulation Sites on our Build a Map page.
