FF05 prototypes: Loan Officer Simulator and Probabilistic Real Estate

Work in progress New York Real Estate price map.
Start of an app where it just says app on the left-hand side and sidebar on the right.
A screenshot of prototype work in progress for Fast Forward Labs. A mocked-up list of tiles is on the right and a map of new york city color-coded by price is on the left.
A screenshot of the Fast Forward Labs real estate map in progress. Showing boroughs in Brooklyn with a color coded heatmap of price change from 2013-2014.
A screenshot of the real estate prototype in progress for Fast Forward Labs. Shows a zoomed in view of the neighborhood the East Village in Manhattan. The color coding shows percent change in price.
An outline of the app structure for the real estate prototype.
A screenshot of the fast forward labs real estate prototype in progress. Showing a view of NYC with hexes color-coded by price.
Screenshot of real estate prototype work in progress for Fast Forward Labs. Shows the sidebar with info on a specific hex location and similar hexes.
Screenshot of the real estate prototype for Fast Forward Labs work in progress. Shows the sidebar with info about the selected hex.
Fast Forward Labs real estate prototype in progress, experimenting with putting the price scale color codes in the back of the price graph.
Debug view of Fast Forward Labs real estate prototype in progress
Screenshot of the FFL real estate prototype in progress. Switched over to a question interface.
A screenshot of the Fast Forward Labs lending club prototype in progress. It shows a histogram about how much of a loan is likely to be repaid if the loan is not fully repaid.
Screenshot of the lending club prototype for Fast Forward Labs. Showing a cumulative graph.
Screenshot of this website, I just finished doing some work on it so that it will tweet now and load posts as you scroll.
Screenshot of lending club prototype work in progress. Shows two graphs detailing the likelihood of repayment of a long. Not too much design done yet, just trying to figure out the possible values.
Screenshot of FFL Lending Club prototype in progress. Showing a little bit of the interaction as you hover over the probability distribution.
Screenshot of FFL lending club prototype work in progress. The top graph has now been reversed and there is a hover on the probability distribution that sums up the probabilities on each side.
Lending Club prototype work in progress for FFL. Switched to a table layout.
Lending Club prototype in progress, the sidebar on the left now shows a graph of the shape of the loan.
Screenshot of the lending club prototype work in progress. Loan sidebar shows charts for each loan and loan detail shows a more detailed view of a specific loan.
Screenshot of the Fast Forward Labs lending club prototype in progress. The loan detail view now shows the information written out in sentences. The loan graph has axis labels and lines showing the original amount and the 5% percent catastrophe level.
Screenshot of the Fast Forward Labs lending club prototype work in progress. There is now both a probability graph of all the probabilities and one focused on loans that are only partially repaid.
Screenshot of the lending club prototype work in progress. Now has a combo graph and probability graph, some clean-up on the sidebar. The big change is the rate state has been refactored, which is not obvious from the screenshot.
Screenshot of the lending club prototype. Now showing two graph lines, where you can change the interest rate and see the results.
Screenshot of the Lending Club prototype. Now called LoanOfficerSimulator. Just the title and a few amount numbers up so far.
Screenshot of the lending club prototype in progress, LoanOfficerSimulator. The prototype now lets you adjust the rate and see changes in both the 'combo' chart and the written description. The loans on the side also have predetermined amounts.
Lending Club prototype for Fast Forward Labs in progress. More work on the differences as you change the interest rate. Now the changes in values are highlighted in an additional paragraph.
LoanOfficerSimulator (the Lending Club prototype), now with a probability distribution graph and a 'Make Loan' button.
LoanOfficerSimulator in progress. A very rudimentary version of the simulation of loan returns has been added.
Screenshot of LoanOfficerSimulator with some more work on the design. It is now stripped back to the one 'Combo' graph and has the changes that result from different interest rates arranged in a grid.
Returning to work on the Fast Forward Labs real estate prototype. This time taking what I learned from the structuring of the Lending Club project and applying it -- using Redux and a data-service layer to manage requests to the API (there are too many requests!). Just got the year timeline working again. The color coding here is likelihood you'll be able to afford a place in a neighborhood if you have $1,000,000 to spend.
Fast Forward Labs Real Estate prototype in progress. Select the price and the year and see what percent of the properties for sale you would be able to afford in each neighborhood.
Real Estate Prototype work-in-progress. Now with a diverging color scale and the option to switch between chance and price color-coding.
Real Estate Prototype: the sidebar now shows the neighborhoods in a split column arrangement. One side shows the neighborhoods whose prices fall below the price focus, the other shows those whose prices are above.
Moved some controls around on the Real Estate prototype. Also added the labels to the map itself and got hover working.
Building out the neighborhood focus view in the Real Estate prototype. The view now features a probability distribution graph of the sampled prices.
The probability distribution graph works, along with the neighborhood focus in the map view. Now working on getting a price over time graph working.
The real estate prototype now shows a graph of probability over time and a list of similar neighborhoods.
Working on cleaning up the UI and making it clearer what the real estate prototype is actually showing you. Spent a long time on the price input and still not sure about it. But things are coming along.
Got the filters mocked in to the real estate app, though they are not functioning yet.
The filters on the real estate app list view work now.
Continue the clean-up of the real estate prototype. Now working on cleaner and more self-contained graphs.
More work on UI clean-up for the neighborhood focus view in the Real Estate prototype.
Working on the probability view for the real estate prototype. Just finished getting the price filter working using d3 histogram binning. Interesting to try and decide on the best formats for the two different modes. They are similar in many ways but different in important ones.
Continuing to work on making the graphs specific to probability mode in the real estate prototype.
Got the probability by year line graph working in the real estate prototype. Now going to take a step back to look at the overall structure.
Returning to work on the FFL real estate prototype. Working on making the probability mode view more useful and understandable. Not quite there yet.
Lots of UI clean-up on the real estate prototype today. Trying to get the sidebar in shape, a lot done but a fair amount more to go.
Real estate prototype after lots of UI clean-up.
More layout work on the Loan Officer Simulator prototype.
More working graphs and colors for the Lending Club prototype.
Loan officer simulator with a lot of styling clean-up and the 'loan approved' styling back in.
Working on the Loan Officer Simulator results page. The app is fully functional now and I'm doing a little user-testing around the office.
Making some adjustments to the lending club app after a round of in-office user feedback.
Starting to do the graph hover info for the lending club prototype.
Getting hex view working for the selected neighborhood in the real estate prototype.
Hex display now color coded on the real estate prototype.
Getting close to finishing up the real estate prototype. Working on cleaning up styling stuff.
Working on making the loan officer simulator responsive.
Responsive work on the loan officer simulator project continues.
Working on mobile for the real estate app as well.
Our public version of the real estate prototype is up!
