A quick and dirty dot density map of contibutions to Blackwell and Gauthier

After creating a small analysis of campaign finance data for the Blackwell and Gauthier campaigns, I thought it would be interesting to see on a map where financial contributions come from.

I extended my script to geocode all of the addresses of donors and output them to a CSV file. I wrote another script to read this CSV file and write another file with a point per $50, with the location randomized within its square on a grid.

I then loaded this file into QGIS and overlayed it on top of Philadelphia Neighboorhood outlines and county outlines.
