Project Drake in 2011-12 mapped the University estate in considerable detail. To aid consistency, a University of Cambridge Tagging Schema was published.

The data continues to be maintained and used to generate the University's official map.

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.
