Animation by Chris Rutherford, intro by Jessica Saia

Talking about SF housing is so hot right now, and everyone goes crazy for maps, so why not combine the two in a quick animated visualization that you can feast your eyes on. (This animation is gluten-free, for anyone whose eyes have dietary restrictions.)

Chris Rutherford took three years worth of data from and put it together in this topography-esque animation. SF's neighborhoods are separated into 3-D puzzle pieces, and the average price to rent a home is tracked as it changes from December 2010 through last month.
