Is Airbnb better than rental property

AirBnB vs. Berlin

The project

This student project was created as part of the course "From Reading to Exploring - Visual Storytelling in Data Journalism" in the 2014/15 winter semester at the Design Department at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences. The site has no commercial or judgmental intent and was not created on behalf of competing companies or interest groups. The website, text and graphics were created by Alsino Skowronnek (@Alsinosko), Lucas Vogel (@soyvogelino) and Jonas Parnow (@zeto). The project was supervised by Jan-Erik Stange and Michael Hörz. The tools used are CartoDB, QGis and Gephi, the Bootstrap, jQuery and C3 frameworks and the Ruby, R and JavaScript scripting languages.
