    Lots of people like that fact that Hivemapper has over 10 million building heights and counting :)

    What they and frankly we don't like is that it the user experiences requires somebody to process lots of information as for each building we currently display its height, so you have to process lots of bits of information to see what the tallest building in the area is.

    We are experimenting with a different approach -- a heat map for the building heights like you see above. Red is taller and blue is shorter.

    Any quick thoughts?

    If someone is just trying to find the tallest building, wouldn't it be easier to be able to draw a box on the map (where they plan to fly) and then have Hivemapper find the tallest building within those coordinates?

    Short answer is yes. But what if I don't even want to draw anything, can it be done without any clicks at all.

    When you start flying with Hivemapper we have a feature that we intend to add which will tell you the tallest building/structure in a 2 mile radius.

    Colors seem to be the way to go for that use case.
