DescriptionJail Jawn is made up of a scraper, an API, and front-end visualizations. The raw data is scraped from the web, provided as "Daily Census" on phila.gov/prisons. The goal of this project is to save this data over time, as the website from which the data is pulled provides no archived data, and provide quick, easy access in addition to a visualization to easily understand the data. The data scraping has been automated to retrieve this data daily and store it using Firebase.
