Who owns England?

An interesting resource and project I came across – Who owns England? and the related project website. For those interested in property rights and distribution of resources across a population worth taking a look. The visualisation is interesting as an example of how mapping can reveal interesting patterns. Another example of this can be found here. The guy behind this has linked all buildings in the Netherlands to the year they were built. The resulting maps are really rather beautiful. The inspiration for this project came from a similar one undertaken for New York (see here).

Utrecht from the Bert Spaan and the WAAG society
