Project Description


How do the suburbs of Sydney interact and evolve? We explore the city through the lens of data, generating new suburbs and evolving existing ones to compare and contrast with the existing social and cultural landscapes of the city.


Data Story


Our project combines multiple data sources to stitch together different aspects of the fabric of NSW, including census data, zoning and industrial data to build a rich visualisation of the connections between the different suburbs of NSW, and gain insights about the future development of the city.
