Information about Mapping Dubai's Unsustainability

Published on March 12, 2009

These are six maps that I created for a course called "Mapping Urbanism" (under prof. Kelly Hutzell) during graduate school at Carnegie Mellon. The idea was to choose a city from a list of 6 and a theme of personal choice and create maps that present information in a coherent and visually engaging way . My chosen city was Dubai and I set out to research and collect information to map the "unsustainability" of Dubai. Though the information was hard to come by, I tried my best to identify and map Dubai's most pressing problems.

If you would like a high resolution copy of any of these maps, mail me at
