Edmonton Building Age Map

Edmonton is the latest city to join the ever growing list of cities around the world with a map showing the age of buildings.

The City of Edmonton Building Age Map is a nice example of this popular style of interactive map. Individual buildings on the map are colored by each building's age of construction. You can also hover over individual buildings on the map to see its year of construction.

What I most like about the Edmonton map is the ability to view building ages on the map by different years. If you select these year buttons in chronological order you can see how the City of Edmonton has grown over the 20th and 21st centuries. It really is a neat visualization of urban sprawl in action.

Here are just a few other building age maps:
