GENTRIFCATION IN WYNWOOD
Role: Data Visualization Designer
Timeline: 3 Months
Wynwood is a neighborhood in Miami, Florida that has recently seen an economic shift in residents and patrons. The neighborhood is divided into two districts: the residential district (North Wynwood) and the arts district (South Wynwood.) Using data from the Decennial Census and the American Community survey, I tell the story of a rapidly changing neighborhood.
Once I had the data set, I knew I wanted to break down the story of the changing neighborhood in a way that was understandable to all. The map was an essential component to demonstrating where Wynwood was in Miami. I knew that I wanted to include a timeline to familiarize viewers with the evolvement of the neighborhood over time.
In the final visualization, in addition to the timeline and map, I visualized how the numbers of housing units grew from 2000 to 2010. I also showcased the changing demographic that evolved in the last ten years in Wynwood.
