Mapping Edmonton's Growth

Urban Sprawl in Edmonton is a building age map created by Darkhorse Analytics which shows the growth of the city from 1898 to the present day. The map allows you to view how and when buildings were constructed and how the city has grown over the last 120 years.

The map includes a simple timeline control which allows you to select any year from 1898 to 2017. The dark green buildings on the map are the ones that have been constructed in the last five years from the date selected. The lighter green maps were constructed prior to the year selected. If you click on an individual building footprint on the map you can view the actual year when it was constructed.

Urban Sprawl in Edmonton includes as 'infill' view which allows you to view new houses built in existing, older neighborhoods. In this view the purple buildings are at least 30 years newer than the average of other residential buildings within a 500m radius.
