The goal of this project was to determine where to build new public drinking fountains in the City of Vancouver. It achieved this by way of a GIS map showing access to public drinking water across Vancouver. Analysis of spatial data yielded 29 potential sites for priority construction, as well as 18 secondary sites for further consideration. This report recommends building a total of 47 new drinking fountains to ensure equitable access to drinking water for all Vancouver residents.
