Mapping the Age of Milwaukee Buildings

The Milwaukee Building Age Map is a MapBox powered map that visualizes the age of buildings in this Wisconsin city.

We have seen a lot of these building age maps in the last year (see the list below). The Milwaukee Building Age map follows a familiar format by shading buildings on the map by their year of construction.

However the Milwaukee map also includes a useful graph that visualizes the number of buildings built by year. This highlights a construction boom in the 1950's. In conjunction with the map we can clearly see the growth of Milwaukee in the 50's in the northeast and in the south of the city.
