Motivated by trying to find the age of my son's apartment in Amsterdam gave me the perfect opportunity to update a map I remembered seeing many years ago that had been rendered using Mapbox's old Tilemill application.
Building construction dates are published monthly as opendata in the BAG (Basisregistratie Adressen en Gebouwen) dataset in the Netherlands and the geometry for all 10 million or so buildings is available combined with building heights. This provided the opportunity to use Mapbox GL's capability to render 3D buildings, coloured by age of construction.
Rollover any one of the buildings on the map to discover exactly how old it is. With a bit more time (and a better understanding of Dutch) we're hopeful we'll be able to extract more address data for each building. In the meantime, I discovered my son's apartment was built in 1951.
