2. A mechanism (called CaPinion) that will compare and rate each apartment along the lines of rent, access to public transit, proximity to amenities and past crime occurrences around the area. To build the mechanism, information was procured from many sources such as U.S. Census Bureau, OpenStreetMaps, Factual, Wikipedia, police department of various cities etc
