This looks great! The interaction between the maps and the critical analysis text makes for a great project. What program did you use to make the maps?

wow, nice job. The visual representation of this is very powerful, so much easier to explain the rapid change in PDX using these. 2000 to 2010 is pretty wild to see. Obviously we all saw it happen but interesting to see the actual percentage change. Can you add coffee shops that opened in the neighborhood between 2000-2010, that might help too, ha!
