In the first post in this series, there were some great recommendations on how to change the land footprint graph. In my original version, I graphed the number of blocks in our region that fall into a given land area per person. The suggestion was to instead plot the number of people living at a given land area per person. I’ve taken it a step further and plotted percentage of people living at a given land area per person. For example, 0.52% of people in our region have a land footprint of around 600sf per person, which corresponds with the Capitol Hill picture below (the bottom left). Graphing using the percentage of total population will allow me to compare regions of different size on the same graph, which will be useful in my next post in this series.
