How badass is your Portland neighborhood? Check the Portland Badass-ness Map
You know, we throw a lot of technology around in Portland. A lot of open source. A lot of geohacking. A lot of data points being tossed about, willy nilly.
But let’s be honest. What is data without context? Not much. And when it comes to context, what better context is there than badassedness? None. Really.
So when you take the data in Portland and combine it with a badass factor, which neighborhood is the most badass neighborhood in Portland?
Thanks to the data in Calagator, data from elsewhere in Portland—like land values, beer availability, strip clubs, coffee locations, food carts, MAX access, pinball, Supportland coverage, and bike access… and some heat map magic, you may soon find out.
Watch and see.
Yeah. I know. Kind of just a Portland promo video, right?
