Exercise 4: Google Fusion Tables

Posted on

The map above displays the smallest area in square footage on which a multifamily housing unit can be placed in each particular city in the metropolitan Hartford area. The darker the shade of the town, the smaller the square footage necessary for the lot to be occupied by multifamily housing. The lighter the shade the larger the lot necessary. Basically, shows which towns only allow multifamily housing on relatively large housing lots, and which towns allow multifamily housing on relatively small lots. This indicates which towns are more likely to be friendly to multi-family housing and which towns are likely to create obstacles for multifamily housing. By clicking on the individual cities, you can get the specific lot size requirements for each city, as well as other related stats.

Note: the cities shaded in red do not have multifamily housing lot size data.
