NYC is So #OpenData it has a Bubble Map & Neighborhood Map of Known Dog Names!
We ♥ NYC! It’s culturally vibrant. We’re proudly engineered in it. And it’s dense with data! The inevitable outcome of cramming 8+ million folk into a 303 sq. mile land mass (468 including the water). Not to mention the approximate 600k dogs that call one of the five boroughs home! So doggie data is compiled too, and the city keeps a bubble map and neighborhood map of names. The bubble map expresses all known names, with Bella being the most popular overall (1195 dogs) and the neighborhood map expressing the most popular name by neighborhood (with Rambo and Theodore being surprisingly favored choices).

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
