Mapping changes in the built environment of Pittsburgh

This is an awesome historic map tool that overlays old maps on top of each other along with a current satellite view. You can scroll through the different decades and see how the built environment of any neighborhood in the city has changed, and compare it to how the area looks today in satellite view.

Click on the link below to start exploring. You can zoom in on specific neighborhoods.

  1. Interesting to see these maps and using the locator to find buildings set for demolition. Sad to see them go.
