Building Age Maps

As soon as I saw the Wired article come through on Twitter I knew it was something pretty cool. The article, Brilliant Maps Reveal Age of the World’s Buildings, brings together a series of maps that use data on the age of buildings to create some gorgeous looking interactive maps. This is a pretty good example of using relatively approachable tools (incl TileMill) to present complex data in an intuitive and revealing way.

Here are a few stills from the set:
