Looking back 10 years: 2014 to 2024

A lot can change in 10 years. To demonstrate that change (and to showcase the wealth of insights that can be obtained with our data!) NationalMap have built a side-by-side map comparison tool for anyone interested in seeing this built environment change for themselves.



  1. For best experience please use the Looking Back tool on a desktop device.
  2. On the left of the visualisation is the NationalMap basemap and associated data from 2014, and on the right is 2024. We’ve added some presets in the drop down at the top which you can check out, or you can just pan around to find your own specific area of interest. You can also switch on the speed limits toggle to see how speed limits have changed over the years.
