Possible future locations

POI + buildings + landuse + addressing in central London

How about extending the POI + buildings + landuse + addressing in central London to cover the whole area that lacks landuse areas in central London, which is more or less the congestion charge zone? There's stacks of cycle parking and buildings missing around Waterloo / Southbank / Bankside, for example. TomChance 06:53, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

Really? I thought Shaun & Andy had thoroughly bike-mapped the south bank while at CloudMade. Well it could be a good excuse to go to to the old Mulberry Bush pub. I'm up for it, but may need you to make the cake diagram. I'm not sure what's missing there. Buildings coverage can be extended in that direction obviously, but that doesn't fit with my blob plans -- Harry Wood 10:56, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
The council have put in an awful lot of new bike parking spaces in Southwark in the past year or so, and Lambeth seem to have improved Southbank a fair bit. When developing your blob plans it would be good to focus on central London first, which this crap map gives you some idea of (that's the official definition). I'd be happy to help with a cake if it was in August some time - I'm away most of July! TomChance 10:26, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

OK the next mapping party will be South Bank. The cake diagram is half within Southwark (boundary) half within Lambeth (boundary) Not exactly sure where the new bike parking has been added, but hopefully we'll find some of it there. I'll let our Southwark council contacts know about it too -- Harry Wood 11:30, 1 September 2010 (BST)
