UK life expectancy animated map

The UK's Office for National Statistics has been creating interactive content to bring its data to life, making it more meaningful and memorable. A good example which should give architects pause for thought is an animated map which illustrates changing life expectancy across the UK for males and females. Interacting with the map allows you to see how a particular geographical area compares with the UK as a whole, which in the case of Glasgow makes for alarming viewing.
