We’ll celebrate a mappy christmas some time in December. Maybe on a Friday or Saturday night? To be decided

We’re putting together a list of London event venues for future events of a non-pub format. Please chip in if you have ideas or if your organisation would like to host or sponsor an event!
There’s lots of other events in London e.g. tech meet-up groups, for which OpenStreetMap is relevant. Please use the wiki to pro-actively coordinate the setting up of an “OpenStreetMap presence” at these events… or just go along (Other OSMers may or may not be there)

London is still progressing in terms of coverage. Pretty much the entire area within the M25 is mapped out with road coverage, but some of this was sketched in from Yahoo imagery, and now have had their names filled in from Ordnance Survey data. So there are some outlying areas which have never been surveyed and mapped in any detail. We don't have a very clear view of where these area are, but areas around Hillingdon north of Heathrow used to glow red on the NoName map.
For a long time we've had complete coverage of the London underground network allowing us to render a Tube Network Map, including nice details like tunnels and bridges. Our List of London Underground stations gives a plain list of stations as they were originally surveyed by GPS. We have a pretty complete set of stations and rail network for all of the normal surface trains in Greater London, although there may still be some tagging/representation inconsistencies. Bus routes in London are a big task, but this is progressing really well. See the Transport map in London (How's your area?!)
London is subdivided into 32 boroughs. Within our data we see these represented as admin boundaries, which are now all mapped out. See London borough boundaries for details and links to these.
London boroughs are also UK local councils of course, and with all of these it would be fantastic to see them making use of open geodata from OpenStreetMap, working with our community to supply change updates, or partnering with us to engage local communities via the process of OpenStreetMapping.
We could create wiki pages about the London boroughs.
Barking and Dagenham, Barnet, Bexley, Brent, Bromley, Camden, Croydon, Ealing, Enfield, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Harrow, Havering, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Lewisham, City of London, Merton, Newham, Redbridge, Richmond upon Thames, Southwark, Sutton, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Wandsworth, Westminster
…but note that wiki pages about small areas can fall into disuse quite easily, so don’t be too ambitious with info requiring updates. The London boroughs might be a useful subdivision for tracking mapping progress, but probably not through manual updating of wiki pages. One automated tool which uses the subdivision to good effect already is the OSM and OSL differences analysis e.g. see the report for Camden
