Housing Density in Melbourne
Last week Maps Mania posted about the The Melbourne Bike Crash Map from the City Science Group at Monash University. The City Science Group has also created an interesting map of Melbourne House Density.
This map visualizes the distribution of dwelling density in Melbourne. Building plots on the map are colored by the number of dwellings per square kilometer. You can mouse-over the individual building plots to view the number of dwellings.
The map reveals that housing density is highest in the city center, presumably because of higher building density and more high-rise dwellings. Housing density becomes lower as you move out from the city center to the suburbs, where there is more low-rise housing and more space between dwellings.
