WFYI’s new series, “INTERSECTIONS features powerful visualizations by SAVI

WFYI has launced a new multimedia series, Intersections that explores the complex issues that intersect some of Indy’s most challenged areas. Visit https://wfyinews.atavist.com/intersections to learn more about the series.

We’re glad to share that SAVI helped develop the interactive visualizations that are featured in WFYI’s Intersections series. It is increasingly recognized that socio-economic factors play a large role in neighborhood crime rates and SAVI’s visualizations highlight unemployment rates, poverty rates, and educational attainment for Marion County and the six distressed neighborhoods.

WFYI also utilized The Polis Center’s Project on Religion and Urban Culture to obtain histories of the neighborhoods where the DPS focus areas are located.
