Our interactive map brings together a range of data points that affect the city’s historic built environment, and can be zoomed in and out to get a localised or city-wide perspective.
It includes such influential factors as the location of listed buildings, buildings on the At-Risk Register, the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, housing statistics, vacant land and incidents of fire. It also allows you to view the boundaries of local Council wards, MSP (Holyrood) and MP (Westminster) constituencies.
Zoom into the map and use the layer controls on the right of the map to play around with the data and overlap it in different ways. Click on a marker on the map to find out more information.
We mined data from open sources, like the national census and household surveys, and interrogated this information to find out what the picture is like in Glasgow. Under the map you’ll find information about the data sources we used, including links.
We made a previous version of the map in 2019, which can be accessed here.
- Buildings at Risk data for Glasgow comes from Historic Environment Scotland and is correct as of June 2021.

- Vacant commercial properties data comes from an FOI request to Glasgow City Council in February 2019.

- Data on age of housing comes from Home Reports data. Home Reports only exist where a dwelling is bought / sold, so coverage varies by area. Figures should be taken as an indication only.
- Tenure data comes from the Scottish Census, the last of which was in 2011.
