Title of the Project: Spatial Analysis of Housing Development in London
The aim of the project is to analyse and visualise data from the London Development Database (LDD), a uniquely detailed and comprehensive database of housing development in London held by the Greater London Authority and based on data from London borough planning departments. The rich amount of detail on each individual scheme in the LDD make it a uniquely useful dataset, and the GLA is keen to make more and better use of it, including making the data more widely available in as informative and engaging a format as possible.
Duration: Feb to Dec 2012
Since 2007, James has been a Senior Policy Officer (Data and Information) in the Housing and Land Department of the Greater London Authority. James has a BA in Sociology and Linguistics from University College Dublin (2001), a Graduate Diploma in Economics from Birkbeck College (2010) and an MSc in Human Geography Research from the London School of Economics (2012).
James’ Aspirations for the Fellowship
I hope to learn the skills required to make better use of the data held by the GLA, and to learn from the people at CASA, who are doing some very exciting research in all sorts of areas.
