Russia's Building Age Maps

How Old is This House is a fantastic collection of building age maps of Russian Cities. Currently the project includes eight interactive maps which visualize the ages of all buildings in the cities of Moscow, St Petersburg, Kalinngrad, Penza, Voronnezh, Vladimir, Nizhny, Novgorod, Kazan and Yekaterinburg. 

Each individual city map in How Old is This House colors individual building footprints to show when each  building was constructed. Each map also includes a timeline control which allows you to filter the buildings shown on the map by age. This is very useful if you want to discover a city's oldest buildings or want to see all the buildings built during a specific period in history.

You can click on an individual buildings on the map to discover the exact year that it was constructed. Where available you can also view pictures of the building and a brief history. The data for this information comes from a number of sources. As you might imagine there tends to be more information available for buildings of historical importance.  

You can discover many more interactive building age maps using the building age tag on Maps Mania.
