BCOE undergrads perform data analytics for Riverside County


Each year, on one morning before dawn in January, volunteers around

the country conduct the annual Point-in-Time Count, a census snapshot

of sorts mandated by HUD. For the first time, UCR's BCOE has partnered

with the County of Riverside to provide the data analytics and

visualization platform for the 2019 PIT Count. Undergraduates from

Computer Science and Electrical Engineering developed a data

transformation pipeline and interactive dashboard visualization tool

to navigate this data, which is being released publicly in April.

Students are gearing up to expand to San Bernardino, Orange and San

Diego next year. Work is conducted under the guidance of professor

Paea LePendu.
