Built Landscapes of Metropolitan Regions August 2015 Prof. Stephen M. Wheeler, Department of Human Ecology

Clicking on the map icon at left provides the option of opening any of the 24 metropolitan regional maps created by Prof. Wheeler within his Built Landscapes project, as well as descriptions of landscape types. These maps show the distribution of different types of built landscapes, i.e. patterns of streets, blocks, parcels, buildings, and infrastructure at the scale of an urban neighborhood or greater. Built landscapes often correlate with livability and sustainability variables (walkability, motor vehicle use, greenhouse gas emissions, demographic diversity, urban heat island effects, etc.). It is important for stakeholders to think proactively about desirable built landscape forms within new development.
