This web application is particularly useful when looking to buy or rent property anywhere in England, UK. illustreets puts deprivation, crime, education, transport, environment, and census data on an interactive, searchable map, helping you to compare between locations on the fly.

You can hover over the map to get useful information about any location, in real time. Then, as you click on a coloured area, you get full details about that particular neighbourhood. 

Also, users can filter the neighbourhoods by a number of criteria. For example, house hunters can filter the results by the number of bedrooms and the property price. Unaffordable areas are then shaded out on the map and users can view detailed summaries of the areas where they can afford to live.
