The best use of map data in a city like Amsterdam for urban planning can be found in this infographic. The map reveals that Amsterdam has over 25 percent of the world’s population according to the US Census.
For that population, Amsterdam could potentially increase the density of roads by about 25 percent to 50 percent and the city could produce a tremendous amount of low-density urban districts.

In reality, the potential impact of Amsterdam urban planning is limited by the sheer number of parcels left in Amsterdam that could yield much higher densities. This is not to say that the urban planning in Amsterdam would be the best way to increase density.

The data above from the World Cities Institute is used as the basis of this article and are therefore not intended to take away from the work of the authors of The Smart Cities Report.

The map is drawn from this map showing a large open area where the population density will not exceed its former value. The green borders and the red borders of the map are used to distinguish between different areas and to create different geographical features that are more likely to be influenced by changes in urban and climate conditions.

Note: The number of residential units in Amsterdam is only applicable to the 12 months ending June 20. No. of residential units in Amsterdam is also subject to these figures.
