Altadena Filming Map (NEW)

The Altadena Filming Frequency Map portrays 10 years of filming activity in Altadena and the unincorporated neighborhoods in adjacent zip codes. The data was derived from filming permits
issued by LA County's filming permit service, FilmL.A.

For an account of how the data was acquired see https://www.altadenafilming.org/2018/06/the-data-chase-learning-ropes.html.

The map illustrates two types of filming activity: filming at individual locations and filming on area streets and grids. Scaled location markers are used to show varying levels of filming activity.

The source data for the map is available at http://bit.ly/2KnaEN

By clicking on an individual location marker, a dialog box will appear with the following information:
