The color by % change is interesting. It makes a place like Society Hill look hot while Brewerytown look cold. Also makes me wonder how much work is being completed without a permit.

I think what Tim said is so important when thinking about Philadelphia. This map just reminds us about the realities of working in Philadelphia and taking into account how important methods of data mining are when putting out information. I wouldn't agree that tracking by building permits makes most sense for our area. Just stresses the need to be educated where yo work.
