Brandon: then vs now(ish)

Posted by in bdnmb, OpenData

One of the utilities the City of Brandon provides is updated satellite imagery. Although the imagery is from 2013, they provide it at a really high resolution!

For example:

So I thought, what would happen if we overlapped those images, to see how Brandon has expanded over the last few years.

Turns out, City of Brandon provides 2 more years of images – 2010 and 2005. Although both 2010 and 2005 don’t go down to high resolution, you can still see from the map below just how much we’ve changed. Drag the slider at the top to switch between the two years.

(Note: hover over the layers button on the upper right to switch between 2010/2005 as a comparison)
