VCU MetroView Development Tracker

MetroView is a VCU initiative to study, discuss, and analyze metropolitan areas with special focus on the Richmond region. Development Tracker is a VCU MetroView GIS database designed to monitor development trends and patterns in Central Virginia and the Crater Planning District. The project is being undertaken by the VCU Center for Urban and Regional Analysis.  This database is to be updated annually.

The initial report was completed in May 2015. It includes all Crater PDC localities as well as Richmond Regional SMSA and PDC localities. It is approximately 200 MB in size.

The project includes an online interactive mapping application.

Key data was collected for the base year 2013 from local assessor files and GIS systems including parcel land and improvement value and parcel size. Where available, existing land use, number of dwelling units per parcel, improvement construction year and building area were documented. The final report focused on single-family development. Future reports will add job type and location, Census socio-economic data, and an analysis of multi-family housing.
