Mapping and visualizing urban form: urban intensification analysis for NZ cities

Pengjun Zhao, NZ Centre for Sustainable Cities

Urban intensification is one of key issues for local carbon management as it has influences on community energy consumption and related greenhouse gas emissions. This presentation will report the results of urban density analysis for major New Zealand cities. The density of these cities will also be compared with the density of corresponding Australian cities. In the final part of this presentation, the applications of the density results for the next step research will be discussed.
