What's Happening in Raleighwood?

Nosy Raleigh is designed to keep you up-to-date about goings-on in Raleigh, North Carolina. It is still growing as I figure out how much I can do with JavaScript and RSS. Currently these pages are available:

Crashes, Crime, and Construction -- Uses datasets from Raleigh Open Data to map traffic accidents, police reports, and construction permits.

Permits Other Than Buildings -- A map to explore Raleigh's Permits Other Than Buildings dataset by date. Goes back to January 1, 2000.

Gov on Twitter -- Tweets from local, county, and state Twitter accounts, aggregated and readable on one page.

Wake County Food -- Search for restaurants by name or location and see their latest health inspection scores.

Local News -- Check out the latest news from a dozen local media sources and blogs. More options will be added over time.

Wake County Public Libraries -- See the Wake County Public Libraries on a map and browse the latest books in a variety of categories.

Higher Education -- Get the latest news from St. Augustine's University, Meredith College, North Carolina State University, Shaw University, Wake Tech Community College, and William Peace University.

Wikipedia -- Enter a Raleigh address and get a map of nearby locations with Wikipedia pages. Information cards give you more details about the location as well as authoritative external links. Uses live Wikipedia queries.

Crashes, Crime and Construction datasets are updated daily, while the Wake County Food datasets are updated weekly. Dynamic news feeds come from RSS and are updated every 15 minutes to every 6 hours depending on the source. Nosy Raleigh is hand-coded HTML and does not use a content management system. It has no ads and will not put cookies on your computer. It has no nosiness about you personally. If you want to learn more about me you can visit Search Gizmos for the programming or ResearchBuzz for the books and search engine obsession. Both those sites have contact forms.

Very important thank you section: Thank you Maps.co for the geocoder API! Thank you Leaflet for making a map library even I could understand! Thank you Papa Parse for making CSV parsing such an absolute joy. Thanks to DataTables for the table glow-ups. Happy to support Flaticon and its bounty of graphic goodness.
