As I mentioned in a previous post, the City of Toronto recently released GIS data that contains the shape and height of every building within the Toronto city limits. It’s a beautiful dataset with enormous potential.

It recently occurred to me to visualize the data based on building height, and that’s what I’ve done below. The map contains no information other than building footprints coloured by height. Blue buildings are low, and yellow, orange, and red buildings are taller.
