Project Maps [click to enlarge]

This project was a study on recent investment trends in housing development in Boston, MA through qualitative analysis and mapping.

Using building permit data for the city of Boston and the American Community Survey (ACS), maps were created to visualize hot spots in areas of housing investments to point towards trends in median rent increases throughout the city.

This project was developed through a course titled “GIS and Spatial Analysis” at Brown University, taught by Parker VanValkenburgh.
