Atlas of Urban Expansion
Wired article, “Europe’s Cities Are Getting More Crowded—That’s a Good Thing,” highlights the Urban Expansion program’s Atlas of Urban Expansion:
This research project from the Marron Institute of Urban Management at New York University allows you to compare the urban expansion of different cities. Between 2000 and 2013, only 6 percent of new urban land in London came from extending the city. In Chicago, on the other hand, a quarter of the city’s urban growth came from suburban expansion.
