The urban analyses, assessing current and historic data and maps of Melbourne, form the starting point of our speculation.A series of overall mappings show The Melbourne Section in relation to the greater metropolitan area of Melbourne. On one hand, these mappings discuss tangible factors such as scale, infrastructure, geography, topography, natural elements and preservation zones. On the other hand, they highlight invisible factors, that drive urban settlement patterns such as political boundaries, population growth and densities, income, affordability and taxation structures, education and employment, demography and ethnicity. These mappings are processed to convey an overall understanding on how the different suburbs of the section interrelate. At the same time, these maps discuss The Melbourne Section as one territory in relation to the greater metropolitan area of Melbourne.
