VMD pointed out this interesting zoomable map of assessed property value changes over the last year in Vancouver.
Anthony Smith at HealthyCityMaps created this map using BC assessment data.
At his site you can click and zoom in to see whats happened to values in different neighbourhoods.
Interesting to see how tax assessments vary from micro area to micro area.
Dark purple represents a large increase, yellow is neutral and dark orange is a large decrease from 2013 to 2014.

Haven’t you always wanted to see housing market data presented as an exciting battle map?
Somewhat more exciting than your average excel sheet, VMD has started a Battle of Vancouver thread over at Vancouverpeak.com where he’s got maps showing the ups and downs of the market for condos and single family homes.
It’s interesting that you really get a sense of things changing on the periphery first.
There’s a stripe of red in the centre where prices are still up year over year. Here’s the map for Single Family Homes:
There’s a similar thing happening in Condo prices, although more areas are Year over Year negative there. Oh, and for extra excitement on this map there’s TANKS! (each tank represents a single percent point up or down):
