Rising Rents in Boston Mapped.
Ungentry has released a nice visualization of rising rents in Boston. Ungentry are a volunteer group using creative technology to solve civic and social problems. One of their main concerns is examining the negative effects of gentrification.
By using three synchronized Leaflet maps side-by-side Ungentry has created an effective tool for comparing Boston housing, income and demographic data from the last three US censuses. The initial map view shows the average cost of renting in Boston neighborhoods. You can explore visualizations of other census data-sets on the maps by selecting an option from the three categorized drop-down menus.
