Static crowd density visuals (625 square metres) 3

The images below show 625 square metres (with a tennis court backdrop) to give some idea of scale. 25m x 25m is 625 square metres.

Each grid is 5m by 5m.

0.5 people per square metre (312 people in 625 square metres)

1 person per square metre (625 people in 625 square metres)

1.5 people per square metre (937 people in 625 square metres)

3.5 people per square metre (2,187 people in 625 square metres)

4 people per square metre (2,500 people in 625 square metres)

4.5 people per square metre (2,812 people in 625 square metres)

5 people per square metre (3,125 people in 625 square metres) - Maximum

5.5 people per square metre (3,437 people in 625 square metres) - HIGH RISK

6 people per square metre (3,750 people in 625 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.
