Built Landscapes of Metropolitan Regions Map Collection

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, and sustainability retrofits to existing built landscapes.
