We need a new way of looking at gentrification. While the ongoing cycle of boom and bust is well documented, research on gentrification often relies on data that take years to collect. With the amount of information currently available, we no longer need to wait so long. Scott Wolf will explain how he’s tracking urban development by using a broad set of open data sources.
