Overchosen Schools: interactive, database-driven chart

This is still in BETA, but I wanted to get something out there for folks that were hungry for information.

The following URL goes to a website I set up and maintain. It runs php on the server and javascript on your computer (thus you need to enable javascript to see anything). Right now, you can go against two years, 2011 and 2010:

http://lottery.cb-pta.com/test/visualize.php?year=2011

http://lottery.cb-pta.com/test/visualize.php?year=2010

You can try other years, but it will not be pretty. 🙂

This is live data I have received from FOIA requests with Unit 4 – when I get 2012 data, I’ll add that to the database and we can all have fun with it.

PS – If anyone knows how the heck CSS transform-origin really works, please let me know – it is a pain in the arse.

PS2 – my apologies to Microsoft Internet Explorer Users. Please upgrade to a better browser. 🙂
