Rocky - Stage 1 - Mapping

It is 2016 and while Rockhampton has a reputation for being “flood-hardened” and resilient, its long history of extended flood peaks persisting for weeks at a time has significant social and economic impacts on the region. As a city on the banks of the second largest river catchment in Australia, Rockhampton has experienced major flooding most recently in 1991, 2011, 2013, and again in 2015. 

Our task during the 'Resilient Rockhampton' project was to build a visitors centre that is both resilient and capable of evolving within the changing urban context that has been visualised.

Part one of this project was mapping the existing conditions and predicting future conditions. I chose to map the following.

1- People and light - The population spread against the use of artificial light both during the day and at night.

2- Flood and loss - Parts of the city that flood and the potential loss (monetary and sentimental) to the community
