Age does matter!

Thanks to my lovely friend L. I have a new favourite website (shared first spot with MapsandtheCity.com of course). On this great website you can see the age of buildings. Different colours for different eras. Makes you realise how spectacular historical city centres are!
All 9,866,539 buildings in the Netherlands are on this map. The map is made with TileMill by Bert Spaan, Waag Society, inspired by BKLYNR. Input comes from the Kadaster, open sourced via CitySDK. B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Take some time sometime this weekend to look around on this website, you’ll love it. Thanks for making my day Bert!

(you see the various shades of blue for the newest part of the Netherlands that used to be water before we Dutchies got into ‘polders’. And the red beauty of old cities like Leiden and Amsterdam…)
