US Election 2016
An interactive map to display election results for the US election 2016, overlaid with proportionally sized hexagons with responsive text sizing. My first major project at BBC News, and a dauntingly high profile one. Positioning and sizing the text inside the hexagons was a notable challenge- especially with BBC News's commitment to legacy browsers.
An interactive database of UK supporters of Jihadist groups. Filter by using the form or find a specific entry with the autosuggest search. This was my first project built using React as there was need for some complicated state management and the design lent itself to components really well.
During development, we wanted to user test a lot because of some complicated behaviour around the filters: how do you bring a big dataset down to a small, relevant and personal selection? Throughout testing I replaced the filters and data to relate to pets to shift focus from the divisive and sensitive nature of the source material to the behaviour of the app. I gave a short talk about this process internally in "Dogs, Cats, Fish & Jihadists".

A tool to compare house price data between 2007 and 2017 at neighbourhood (ward) level. Built using ES6 and D3 to explore data for 8000+ wards.
An interactive map showing rent as a percentage of income in Great Britain. Uses vector map tiles (produced by Ordnance Survey), using
mapbox-gl-jsfor the front end. A lot of research and prototyping was required to see if we could bring this method to production with a focus on performance.
