Neighbouring Locations

Cambridge University

Project Drake started in September 2011 to map the University estate in considerable detail. To aid consistency, a tagging schema for the University of Cambridge has been published: Cambridge/University_of_Cambridge. The project is expected to near completion and go into maintenance mode at the end of June 2012.

Progress - Cambridge City

Cambridge City is now mapped in its entirety to the level of all streets, names and cycleways, most areas of landuse, but not all footpaths. E&OE, of course. A large development at Orchard Park in the northern fringe is nearing completion and will require mapping. Land between Histon Road and Huntingdon Road is scheduled for development in the next couple of years.

  • Footways and bridleways within and around Cambridge
  • Shop locations
  • House addresses - completed December 2012
  • Bus routes in Cambridgeshire
