Mapping the Demolition of Austin
Since 2007 over 5,000 demolition permits have been granted in Austin, Texas. You can view the footprints of all the buildings given demolition permits on the Austin, Demolished: Eight Years of Wrecking Ball Data map.
You can select individual footprints on the map to view a static Street View of the building and view details of the demolition work carried out on the building. The map also includes an interactive bar chart of Austin building demolitions by year. Using the slider controls you can select any time period to filter the building footprints displayed on the map by date of demolition.
