The brown stain up the middle [left side] is Golden Gate Park.

Someone needs to invent some kind of enclosure, like a room, with a toilet and a sink where the public can eliminate. They could put these all over the city! Folks, help me think of a name for such a thing…

San Francisco’s poop-on-the-streets heat map - - because that shit is hot, yo.

Fun fact: how do you tell the difference between human poop and dog poop?

Answer: dogs don’t usually eat corn.

Person A “Wow, we have so many homeless that the streets are covered in poo. Something has to be done”

Person B “yeah this poop is a problem”

Person A “The poop? I meant the homeless. We have to do something”

Person B “Yeah, let’s make a poo tracking app”

Person A < facepalm >

Anyone perform correlation analysis using the Judgemental Map? Hobo BJs and Cults?

That sounds like a great idea, but how could we keep the homeless from using them? /s

Should this be a steam map, tho?

I suspect golden gate park is dark brown due to having ~0 households.

Public parks need either:

  1. To be colored according to a different standard (poop/households will be infinite)
  2. To be merged with surrounding areas to make the numbers meaningful

#1 seems better.
