About this Map
Each coloured area on the map represents different densities of housing, with yellow being low density and red being high density. To get an idea of how these different densities show up in your region today, drag the slider under the map back to TODAY.

The diagram below shows the kinds of homes (units) found today in an hectare, on average, for each type of density. (A hectare is 1 percent of a square kilometre)
