Fire in Amsterdam - Uitrukscanner
Discover Amsterdam's firemen in action! From the siren you can hear when firemen are in a rush to an incident. But where are those incidents? What is going on? And at what time? For the open data contest Apss for Amsterdam I created the "Uitrukscanner" (Dutch). The site displays all incidents reported by Amsterdam's firemen, over the period 2006-2010, as interactive visualizations. A flame chart show various types of incidents over time. Click on the chart to find news of related incidents from the local news channel AT5. Or discover where in the city incidents happen with the map based animation.
