Finding Bigfoot


The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) maintains records of verified Bigfoot sightings throughout North America. A group in Pennsylvania has a bounty of one million dollars for information leading to the capture of a sasquatch.

I like data. I like money. The next step is obvious: use my technical and scientific skills to help find this thing.

I pulled the data from the BFRO website and have a sample of it hosted on https://data.world/.

There's also a live web application built with Plotly's Dash framework running on Heroku.

The app's running on the free tier so it'll be slow to start if it starts at all (in case I run out of free hours for the month). The three part series in the blog posts details how it was built.
