Racial distribution (and density) mapped in Cape Town via @adrianfrith


I found this on the Future Cape Town site, but it was done by someone called Adrian Frith, and more (Joburg/Durban) maps can be found here: In short, the census results have been mapped according to households racial profile, and each dot in the map below represents 50 people.

This goes to show the legacy of apartheid planning in Cape Town, and also shows how far so many people live from the city centre, and urban goods. Think of the liquid fuels required for transportation in a city laid out like this…

I’ve included it as a medium sized map, so to do it justice, view it here:

Really interesting. Thanks Adrian.
