'San Francisco Public Defecation Map Highlights a Shitty Situation'

Steve Dent, writing for Engadget:

As far as serious interactive maps go, Human Wasteland is one of the strangest we've seen. Created by civil-engineer-turned-web-developer Jennifer Wong, the project plots human excrement "incidents" reported by the public to SF311. Her project won a hacking contest put on by real estate site Zillow, an ironic honor considering the city's contentious housing issues. The highest concentration of crap is at a downtown alley next to the financial district, right in a high-traffic area frequented by tourists. No real threat of poop here in the Richmond district, thankfully.
