The Mumbai Land Use Map
Mumbai Data is a Google Map of land use in Mumbai. The map uses data from the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai to show how land in Mumbai is currently being used.
The map sidebar allows you to filter the results shown on the map by 17 different categories of land use, including residential, commercial, industrial, open spaces and utilities. Each of these categories uses a different color on the map so, for example, you can easily see where the major residential areas are in the city and which areas of the city lack open spaces.
The map also uses the Google Maps API custom Styled Maps feature to enable dynamic styling of the map. If you select 'Base Map Settings' from the map sidebar you can adjust the saturation and the lightness of the base map
