To do so, we’ve compiled data and developed visualizations from many different aspects of income.

- Most travel recommendation engines focus on the body of the bell curve – the most likely duration of your trip. The best estimate. Our tool provides visibility into tail events – the “black swans” of the distribution. We combine data about special events with historical information on traffic congestion to predict which neighborhoods to avoid.
