Chicago Graffiti

by Josh H.

This map is using 3 layers to try to illustrate and conceive if there is a connection between them. So the following layers represent 1.) Graffiti reported in Chicago 2.) Crime over the past year and 3.) CTA bus stop throughout the city. The investigation to see if there is a correlation between bus stops throughout Chicago and the reported graffiti. And if reported graffiti results in less crime or more crime committed. My theory is that the graffiti reporting happens in more prominent areas of Chicago vs. less prominent because they are very conscious in the way their neighborhood looks. Maybe the more prominent areas have less crime then the others or maybe there is no correlation between the two and no bias. The map tries to illustrate all of these issues and information
