BatiParis: Mapping the Age of Paris’s Buildings


BatiParis is an online map that shows the age of buildings in Paris (most of which, it reveals, were built between 1851 and 1914.) A note on the interface: clicking on the legend toggles the period of construction, so clicking on a date range removes it from the map the first time. [via]
