Auckland housing and land use geo-data
Project team: Associate Prof Ryan Greenaway-McGrevy, Dr James Jones, Research Fellow, Dist Prof Peter Phillips, Economics,
Faculty of Business and Economics
Geocoding support: Nick Young and Andrew Leathwick, Centre for eResearch
The Centre for eResearch
Nick Young from the Centre offers the geocoding and visualisation expertise to assemble a geo-referenced dataset of housing market indicators to understand how housing markets function in Auckland. The team intends to use the outputs to assess a variety of policies that affect housing affordability, including changes in land use and zoning. The dataset will also be used to examine attendant problems of public transportation and road network access, infrastructure funding, financing, greenspace and coastal access amenity provision.
It is policy-oriented, with many of the project outputs either evaluating housing, land use or public infrastructure policy, or simulating potential policy impacts on urban development, housing, transport and population.

“I have really enjoyed working with Nick and Andrew. I found them to be highly responsive, dedicated and professional. They identified problems that I did not foresee and often suggested viable solutions. I will recommend your team to others. ” – Ryan
