The diagrams illustrate the development occurring at the waterfront area of the Darwin town from 2009 to 2014.
Overall, the downtown witnessed various changes, the most significant of which are the expansion of green- land zone areas with the construction of more amenities and housing.
In the centre of the town, the industrial area inside a roundabout surrounded by footpaths was demolished to make way for a swimming pool for recreational needs, whereas the lake and the green-land zones nearby stayed the same. Outside the roundabout, in the Northwest,it can be seen that no changes were made to the local school and the convention center. In addition, the town was obviously more environmentally friendly with the replacement of a large industrial area into a green land with a lot of trees, accompanied by the expansion of residential areas and the construction of a university.
By contrast, the Northeast of the town did not change much, the evidence of which can be seen in the maintenance of two swimming pools and the fishing area. It is also noticeable that the town seemed to develop its economy by establishing a harbour on the sea, being accessed by a new footpath running through the green land.
