Inspired by building age maps popping up for different cities (Portland, New York, etc.) I created the Vancouver Building Age map using publicly available data on the City of Vancouver website.
In particular I used the parcel polygon shapefile (containing land lot outlines) and a property tax report table. Unfortunately, I could not use building footprints because the latest file containing such information dates back to 1999. I am currently in the process of adding the hover effect to display addresses and will soon post a more detailed description of the map creation process. Some lots do not actually have any information on when the buildings were constructed so I left them gray.
Hope you have fun exploring the map! My personal favourite is the octopus-looking Shaughnessy lots between Oak st and Granville st.
