Computational Media Data Project

My idea was to create a data graphic using the's curation of the Federal government's tracking of endangered species in national parks and other areas.

I had issues with uploading my JSON data.  I tried using an NYTimes example which seemed similar to my goal, then I used a file which used a .txt file.  Neither were good templates. 

I need to work on my facility with strings, arrays, and classes further, as well as API requests.
