Co-authors (in alphabetical order): Alan Gamlen, Dan Hiebert, Paul Spoonley, and Steven Vertovec Abstract: The concept of “super-diversity” refers to the multi-dimensional character of social difference in 21st century gateway cities. Although the term is now in widespread use amongst scholars, policy-makers and practitioners working on issues of migration and multiculturalism, there remains confusion over what super-diversity is and how it has developed over time in specific city contexts. This paper introduces cutting-edge data visualisation tools to explore, analyse, interpret and display big data on various dimensions of metropolitan super-diversity in Sydney, Vancouver and Auckland.
