Mapping Amsterdam: the city's statistics in maps
Mapping specialist Klaas-Bindert de Haan started the archive with the City of Amsterdam. Most of the maps are created internally, and have an interactive element - whether this is an adaptable key allowing the user to filter according to their interests, or animated maps that show information changing over time.
You can find maps of Amsterdam’s historical development, current waste disposal points, solar panels and locations for religious gatherings as well as maps showing Airbnb property values.
As a helpful extra, the online collection offers a "Grab-a-Map" tool where you can grab up to three maps and create your own overlays.There is also an "Open Data" resource which allows students, researchers and software developers to access datasets.
De Haan sees this as an ongoing project with the municipality and is keen on creating a map showing which neighbourhoods people are moving into and out of as a future addition.
