Urban Land 

Land-use map describes the existing purpose each plot of land serves and the location, distribution and total area of different land uses at the precinct level.

Floor space index (FSI) is an indicator of built density and expressed as the ratio of floor space (Built-up) to the plot area.

Public Space

A figure-ground diagram illustrates the relationship between built and open space in precincts. Open spaces such as streets, parks, natural features and plazas are represented by white, while  black indicates buildings.

Nolli's map is utilized as a method to identify different types of public realm in students’ precincts.The map is then used to also analyze the degree of ‘public-ness’ basis access restrictions pertaining to gender, time, age and cost.

Pune has witnessed a change in urban morphology over the time due to changing means of livelihood. The preferences of people have changed due to the upgrading disposable incomes offered by a varied jobs. With the shift in economy due to decentralization of industrial units in Mumbai, Pune has evolved rapidly with increasing demand for housing and infrastructure. This has given rise to the fringes that act as CBDs around which development has evolved. Thus this economic anthropology helps us in understanding the journey of Pune from Old City to the Fringes, with the help of the interdependent parameters studied.
