As discussed in previous threads we realized that something missing in this forum was a map feature. So I decided to work a little and create my own. It is far from complete and only has about 100 projects on it for now but I will continue to add more and more projects regularly. I just thought I would share it with you guys so you can get an idea of what the finished project will be.
A quick walkthrough of the map features.When you click on the link you will be taken to mymaps by google and the map will be on the right with a bar on the left. On it there are 2 main categories:
These 2 categories are based on Yimby, and in each there are 4 subcategories of different heights. I decided to go with feet to separate them due to the fact that this is the US which uses an imperial system. The four categories also each have a colour attributed to them.
1000 feet+ is red
750-999 feet is yellow
500-749 feet is blue
under 500 feet is green
If the project is still not UC the colour is faded.
When you click on the category you wish, all the projects of that height will appear on the map and you can click on individual projects to see more details on the project including: height in feet and meters and floors. I will work on providing more info such as renders and links to the appropriate Yimby Forum as well in the details.
When you click on the category you will also have the list of projects on your left appear. They are organized height wise with the tallest at the top of the list and the smallest at the bottom.
You can have different categories open at the same time if you wish, this allows you to see where each part of New York’s development is situated.
Finally, in the proposed category there is the visions/nothing concrete grey category. These are projects where no details have been provided yet for height or floors. Once a building gets any info on any of the two I will move it to the appropriate category.
Tell me what you think and if you ever see something wrong with it be sure to comment on this thread or send me a message and I will change it immediately.
