BC Housing Market data visualization

Our expertise was recognized by British Columbia provincial government, as we were selected a winner of BC Housing Data Visualization Challenge, awarded at BCTech Summit in Vancouver by government agencies Innovate BC (former BC Innovation Council) and BC Stats.

Our solution was developed using open source R statistical programming language and related frameworks and packages. It covered visualization of vast amount of data from publicly available socio-economic datasets, including Census 2016 and 2011, National Household Survey, Property Transfer Tax, and others.

To quote BC Innovation Council, “Ruby Industries combined a variety of data visualization approaches in a way that makes significant improvements to the accessibility and readability of BC Stats’ housing data.”.
