Mapping Building Height
Anzahl der Geschosse in Hamburg is an interactive map in the style of the many popular building age maps which we have seen over the last year or so. However, instead of coloring each building footprint on the the map by building age, Anzahl der Geschosse colors each building by the number of floors it has.
The lighter colored buildings on the map have the most stories while the darker colors show buildings with less floors. The Anzahl Der Geshosse map reveals that the taller buildings in Hamburg are concentrated in the center of the city and as you radiate out from the center the buildings become less tall.
