Five Points (or The Five Points) was a 19th-century neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It gained international notoriety as a densely populated, disease-ridden, crime-infested slum that existed for well over 70 years.
I'd been reading a history book about the Five Points and found a woodcut of a notorious intersection. I cleaned and up-sampled it in Photoshop, and used VIPs to create the image tile pyramid for the OpenSeaDragon library.
A nice piece of history and art and open-source software.

This interactive map shows where people of specific surnames lived in Ireland in the 19th century, according to parish records. I scraped a static dataset from the Irish Times website, and built a much more interesting way to view the same information, with additional insights provided by clustering of semi-opaque colored markers. The dataset has 4 pieces of information: latitude, longitude, name of parish and number of family surnames in that parish.
