More about the I3 Connectivity Explorer.

Happy PI Day! Release 0.16.0 is available.

The latest version (0.16.0) of the I3 Connectivity Explorer incorporates further details from the Census about broadband subscription rates, including categories like mobile only,  satellite only,  and households without any internet subscription.

On map pages, you can now overlay a second demographic with the base map. Selecting select a bar in one histogram chart highlights the geographic areas for that subset of the data. Now, if you select bars in both charts, the selection is restricted to areas associated with both bars. When you hover over an area, you’ll see the detailed data from both demographics. You can clear either selection by clicking in the margin of the appropriate chart.

You can now set a target subscription rate (as a percent of households) in the notebook preferences. This rate is incorporated in the economic boost calculation as the percentage of households that are expected to have broadband.

Finally, there’s a new demographic for the Census’ “(Black or) African American Alone” category, and the  M-Lab speed test view now supports adjusting the rolling-average window.
