Housing Affordability in Vancouver

This map illustrates the difference in housing costs between Vancouver neighborhoods.

This project draws on data from the 2011 Canadian National Housing Survey. I used qGIS to convert a .shp file of Canadian census tracts to a geoJSON file, and used D3, Leaflet, and Open Street Maps for the visualization.

The next step is to integrate 2006 data for a comparison over time.
