BUILDING PERMIT ACTIVITY

ArcMap, ArcScene 2017

This map was created using ArcMap and ArcScene as part of a series of maps featuring datasets published as open data by the City of Waterloo. This particular map was created using the building permits dataset and intended to reveal some of the trends in the data across the city.

 

As a visualization experiment this map was created using the same dataset represent in several ways. The counts of permits were aggregated into TIN model and eventually converted to a contours layer. The contours were represented in ArcScene based on their elevation forming isolines. The TIN model was then displayed beneath/inside these isolines with a slight transparency in order to shade rear facing isolines.
