General Assembly attendance

Developed a web application that allows readers to view and rank the attendance records off all members of the Rhode Island General Assembly over a 10 year period. The project was self-initiated. It involved parsing 1,270 documents, mostly PDFs, and extracting roll call information and storing it in a database. The application was featured in Source, a web publication by the Knight-Mozilla OpenNews project. (Internet Archive version.)
