A team of undergraduate computer science students participating in BU Spark! will compile and analyze various
datasets to understand how real estate prices, homeownership, and business ownership trends have changed over
time. The City of Chelsea will use this information to visualize, contextualize, and analyze how rising real estate prices
may be contributing to displacement in some neighborhoods.
