The skyline is dramatic evidence of a unique and lasting love affair with the high-rise condo. Per capita, no city in North America has as many residential high-rises as Vancouver. Likely because people want views of the mountains and water, or maybe the fact that the city has nowhere to go but up. After all, the population density is highest on the continent following New York City and San Francisco.
Most of Vancouver's tall buildings are apartment towers and today more and more are either under construction or on the drawing boards. There just seems to be no end to the trend for wanting to live downtown that began in the 60's, boomed in the 90's, breaking records today

To what extent is there a correlation between age & height of the building?
Note the six figure grid reference of each of the locations that you wish to include in your survey, identifying x and y co-ordinates e.g. X 346 Y 223 and set out in a table.
Calculate the mean of x and the mean of y. This is the mean centre

Now measure the degree of clustering around the mean
Measure the distance from each point to the mean. Calculate the average dispersion around the mean & plot it onto the map as a zone.
Are most sites within this zone? If so the land use can be described as clustered. If not, then it is dispersed.

Nearest neighbour analysis is a more detailed quantative technique that could have been used.
