    These maps are brilliant. Two suggestions.

    Could you turn the Emerald Network Map into a printable leaflet with clear links between green areas? People could use it to walk from one area to another as if they were doing an ‘Emerald Way’ long-distance walk around the city (like the Teesdale Way or Weardale Way along the river Tees and river Wear).

    Could you upload an additional map depicting student accommodation densities. Perhaps you could illustrate densities of less than 10-20% in green rising to 30-40% in pale blue, 50-60% in dark blue, 70-80% in purple and 90-100% in red. It would be really helpful to capture on a map the full extent of studentification across the city, including PBSAs as well as houses. If you were able to go into even more detail it would be interesting to depict the scale of some landlords’ housing portfolios as some landlords appear to own 100+ properties across the city and in surrounding villages eg: Bowburn. If you were able to go into yet more detail and capture student housing 25 years ago on a map it would be helpful to compare it to 2017. These maps would be useful in discussions about the pressing need for more balanced communities in the city.
