Predicting Future Urbanization

Revealing the future of Florida's urban growth in a buildable area analysis.

By digitizing the total buildable area across five Florida cities, we can compare current and future building density intensity and location. This visualization uncovers the direction of future growth. This week's series will dive deeper into predicting development trends.

Mapping building density in five Florida cities.

Our density heatmaps, generated by combining the existing building area with the potential buildable area, provide insights into building density across census tracts. Darker tracts, like the few seen in Miami and Tallahassee, indicate the densest areas. 

Unlocking Florida's development potential using growth trajectories.

Though these five cities make up just 2% of Florida's land area, they have the largest populations in the state. This indicates that Florida has vast land available for new development. Visualizing growth trajectories illuminate the most promising investment opportunities.
