Wheres the path? Mapping Wins Award

The Excellent Mapping Mashup 'Wheres the path' will get more funding to be developed further :)

Congratulations to the author of the map Bill Chadwick

Show Us a Better Way

"This competition is about how you can help us make better use of your data"

Out of the huge list of submitted ideas

Where is the path - a winner
Where is the path has been a hugely successful mashup.
(note the yellow bar in the bottom left corner is number of tile impressions - if goes red it is very close the daily limit.)

Now with even more new features:
1) Diagram of Magnetic, True and Grid North relationships

2) Estimated (Naismith) hiking times

3) Sunset calculator (to check if a planned route should end before dark).

Mapping Mashup

Another reminder to Ordnance Survey - raise the limit on OpenSpace tile impressions please - even for this one url. (currently OS tiles have a 30,000 limit per 24hrs - it needs to be 75,000 at least).

Excellent news, and congratulations to Bill for the excellent use of the OS OpenSpace API.

Let's hope this helps to open up the OS mapping data for more general use, and perhaps also improvements to the OpenSpace API too.

Interesting - all the winners seem to have some sort of map as a core part of their service.
