Whong made the animation with the programming language Processing, and the “GeoTrails” for the data were courtesy of Dave Troy, co-founder of Canton-based 410 Labs.

As Technically Baltimore has reported, Whong, the owner of Federal Hill-based Charm City Networks, has put together a number of visualizations and heatmaps. He’s presently completing a master’s degree in urban planning at New York University.
