Interested in the age of your property? CDRC Maps might give you a clue

CDRC Maps has launched a new, interactive map that indicates the age of properties across England and Wales.

Using the ‘dwellings ages’ dataset published by the Valuation Office Agency and the house price summaries from the ONS, CDRC researcher Oliver O’Brien has combined both these open datasets’* into a record on CDRC Data, then mapped both the prices and ages data on CDRC Maps.

Oliver has made use of a color scheme to track the changes in age: grey = old, yellow = 1960s, red = very new.

This feature has generated significant interest across social media. Click here to access the map and have a play yourself.

For more information on the methods used to create this, visit Oliver’s blog post.

*Background mapping is based on Ordnance Survey Open Data.
