The points below represent houses in Chittenden County, Vermont, around the Burlington area. Yellow dots are houses in the year 2000, and red dots show houses by the year 2004. When overlayed with each other, we see where developments have been built over the course of just four years. One of the largest developments is pulled out in the image below. As expected, most of these new homes are outside of town centers, adding to the continuous sprawl of the region around Burlington. These data come from the Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI).
