Hamden Eviction Map
The map below displays evictions for 2017 – 2021 with an additional color coded layer for Legislative Council districts. The unedited source data used for this map was compiled based on court records by the Connecticut Fair Housing Center and is available for download here.
Red points indicate an eviction was filed or a judgment for the landlord was rendered. Users may toggle each layer on and off to see the difference between filed evictions and successful judgments for landlords.
Method & Limitations
This map was created by geocoding each numbered address in the grand list using the Google Maps Geocoding API and a Python script. The locations were then mapped and visualized using Carto.
Two addresses were geocoded as outside of the bounds of the town limits and were manually deleted.
This project was completed in collaboration with Hamden Open Data, a constituent led initiative to increase transparency and facilitate access to information in Hamden, CT.
