MetaData Graph


  • The application is written python.

  • It scrapes the US Library of Congress API for every Us Supreme Court case to extract metadata that is then imported int a graph for analysis.

  • I also experimented with test driven deleopment on this project to learn the pytest library.

How to Improve

  • Import the graph into a Janus Stack

  • Recode into a POLE style graph. People would be the Justices;. Objects would be the issue areas. Locations may be removed and replaced by outcomes. Events would be the individual cases.

  • The POLE can be expanded to include interactions between states, practitioners, issues, political party, ad infinitum.
