Following is the still-image version of the presentation contained within the Methodology section.  The Walkscore ranking for various locations are shown on the Y axis, with ABS Census Collection Districts (CCD) information providing dwellings per Hecatre densities on the x axis.

Each slide from the presentation is included below with a brief description beneath each one.

Relationship between residential density and walkability

The relationship is near linear but only up to about 35 dw/Ha

Once above 35dw/Ha the walkability remains at the maximum 90+

The junction between these two represents the sweetspot, it is...

... the lowest density where both residential houses can exist and the benefits of increasing density occur.
