Good to meet you

Good to meet you on Friday. It was you I was sitting next to in the pub right?

I recognised your name, but couldn't remember from where. You are of course the creator of Image:LondonProgress.gif and the mighty postcodes map Great stuff! What other toys have you made? You should show off a bit more on your user page.

Yes, that was me! I've updated my user page for you.

GPS Points

i want to ask if you may give me a hint how you created the images. is the script online? i would love to hear from you. --Xsteadfastx 13:55, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

It's a relatively simple python script that creates a big 2d array for the image and then just counts how many points fit in each box. The code then scales the colours based on the 95th percentile frequency (or there abouts) to render the image. I'll put up the code when I next get a chance. Randomjunk 13:09, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I Dave!

I tried to use your simple python script to render some gpx files, but the following error occurs:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 186, in <module>
    renderToImage(freqArray, im, col)
  File "", line 131, in renderToImage
    pixels[x, h-y-1] = colorFunc( min(1.0, freqArray[i] / float(dist[-1])) )
ZeroDivisionError: float division

Python 2.6.1 (r261:67517, Dec 4 2008, 16:51:00) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 PIL 1.1.6

Thanks in advance!

Hi Dave. Coming along to Brixton meet-up on Wednesday?

On your unnamed ways map, for Brixton I spotted a funny looking set of streets. They're highway=tertiary. Looks like they're missing the inner saussage.

-- Harry Wood 13:53, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

yes, I'll be there... I know about the tertiary roads... it's a bug I can't be arsed to fix special feature to highlight them. -- Randomjunk 15:55, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

West of East Acton

Slice 11 hey? The streets already on there are ones I bagged during an off-cake excursion at the Shepherd's bush evening. Looks like I managed to miss quite a few but I know there's at least some which geniunely don't have names (Did we come up with a tag for that yet?) I didn't go to the area to west of the train line, but I peered in that direction from a footbridge. I seem to remember some construction work over that way, so the yahoo sketched road layout may be wrong.

Going to London Wiki Wednesdays tonight, so I'm not going to make it, which is frustrating because it would've been really easy for me to get to this one. Ah well... have fun. -- Harry Wood 10:42, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

yeah, it was mostly extending the existing names. There were a few side streets which you can tell from the numbering were just part of the main street so should have the same name. I only found one street without a name board, but again, extrapolating the numbering shows it's the same street as further up. Randomjunk 11:19, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Contact Details

Hello Dave(?).

Could you add some way of contacting you to your user-page? It would help getting in touch with you. --MarcusWolschon 12:37, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
