London is a city in Greater London at latitude 51° 29′ 6″ North, longitude 0° 9′ 0″ West.
London is the capital city of the United Kingdom. Greater London is one of the nine regions of England and is divided into 32 London boroughs. For ceremonial purpose it excludes the City of London. It is the most populous city in Europe (over twice the population of Paris). All road distances to the destination "London" refer to Charing Cross.

The most common type of pure OpenStreetMap event over the winter, will be a simple pub meet-up. These events are free and open to all. It's just a pub. We're not doing any mapping, or any other strange OpenStreetMap rituals (that's only in the summer) We normally have a mixture of old OpenStreetMap hands and new people coming along to find out more. We'll just be sitting around having a friendly chat about little things like freeing the world's geo-data. We hope you'll join us! Everyone and anyone is welcome.
Tue 18th March #geomob
#geomob is a presentations evening on geospatial (maps) topics in general, but often featuring some OpenStreetMap, and always with some OpenStreetMap in attendance.
Thu 20th Mar pub meet-up
Pencilling in Thu 20th March for a future pub meet-up. Venue suggestions, and other organisation is welcome. Harry will not make it.
This will be the last of the winter pub meet-ups before the clocks change March 30th
Wed 2nd Apr pub meet-up or mapping party?
Pencilling in Wednesday 2nd April for a future pub meet-up / mapping event. Venue suggestions, and other organisation is welcome. Harry will not make it.
This will be the first of the London Summer OpenStreetMap events when we've suddenly got some evening daylight. As such, it could be a beginner-friendly mapping event of some sort. To be decided.
Because Harry is a away, nobody will get around to organising anything though. Yes... that is a challenge :-)
Sat 9th August - 10th Birthday Party
OpenStreetMap 10th Anniversary Birthday party. Worldwide party! We'll do something in London. Nothing has been decided yet, except the date. Keep it free!
We'll use this wiki page to announce events, as well as @OSMLondon . Announcements may come at short notice!
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)
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!

This list is brought in from the London/Winter 2013-2014 events wiki page (where you can make edits)
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
