Vancouver is divided into different zones which describe the details of permitted development, use, and so forth. If you've ever tried to figure out what the specific zoning district is in a specific part of town (like your home), you'll know it can be a bit tricky. That's where this map comes in!

The building data (2009) and zoning data (2016) is from the City of Vancouver's Open Data catalogue, and everything else is from Open Street Map. To learn more, check out the City's Zoning Districts page. I used Mapbox to pull it all together with some custom styling and interface work, making use of their amazing new extrusion properties.
