Static crowd density visuals (100 square metres) 5

The images below show 100 square metres (with a tennis court backdrop) to give some idea of scale. 10m x 10m is 100 square metres.

Each grid is 5m by 5m.

0.5 people per square metre (50 people in 100 square metres)

1 person per square metre (100 people in 100 square metres)

1.5 people per square metre (150 people in 100 square metres)

2 people per square metre (200 people in 100 square metres)

2.5 people per square metre (250 people in 100 square metres)

3 people per square metre (300 people in 100 square metres)

3.5 people per square metre (350 people in 100 square metres)

4 people per square metre (400 people in 100 square metres)

4.5 people per square metre (450 people in 100 square metres)

5 people per square metre (500 people in 100 square metres) - Maximum

5.5 people per square metre (550 people in 100 square metres) - HIGH RISK

6 people per square metre (600 people in 100 square metres) - HIGH RISK

From the links below you can view a 10m grid, against a tennis court backdrop, to assist in visualising crowd densities and crowd sizes. I'm going to produce a whole range of crowds against backdrops to act as both a training aid and to provide reference visuals for assessing both density and crowd numbers.
