The Heatmap is a Hit!

Here is the Heatmap Again

Here is the Heatmap Again

Last week, I published the Allston Christmas Heatmap, and it took off! I was interviewed by a reporter from Boston.com and the story ran on their home page most of Saturday. The heatmap was also featured on BostInno, and it stayed near the top of Reddit.com/r/Boston for nearly 24 hours. I was even parodied by Bostonograhy.

Great placement on Boston.com!

Wow! I’m glad that so many people found the map useful, even if the only thing they used it for was a quick laugh. The map was never intended to be a serious project. Yes, it is very real, and based on actual data, but I know readers weren’t jumping out of their seats to go collect second-hand furniture. That’s OK.

I plan to continue doing little projects like this to bring data about the Boston apartment rental market to the public.
