3D Map of London

An interesting visualisation of London’s Urban form:

The visualisation of the density and function of the built-environment shows the dominance of the intensifying city-centre, corridors of commercial development and the smaller scale centres in Outer London.

The data comes from the Valuation Office and the Greater London Authority. For more info and a write up of the background to the viz, take a look at http://www.geographics.blogs.casa.ucl.ac.uk
