Mini project. Exploratory data analysis and visualization of public art in Vancouver, since 1936.
Python-based data exploration. Used the pandas, Basemap, seaborn, matplotlib.
Obtained from Vancouver’s open data catalogue.
The majority of art installations are in the downtown area and near Main Street, and privately owned (i.e. not established by the City), with very little in residential areas. Sculptures and murals are common types of art. There was a spike in art installations by the City in 2010, likely in preparation for the Olympics. 65% of these installations in 2010 have been removed as of 2017.
