The goal of this project was to produce analyses and data visualizations, in order to advocate for the Melbourne Metro 2 (MM2) rail plan. We researched a multitude of benefits of the MM2 including conducting spatial analyses on population growth, job distribution, method of travel to work, and traffic volume. Additional analyses addressed real estate prices, cost and time savings, job creation as well as environmental and health benefits. Findings from our analyses were shared through a website, video and booklet to support Friend of the Earth's Sustainable Cities campaign, where they are constructing a case for the funding of the MM2.
