Coventry is a metropolitan borough and city in West Midlands (county) at latitude 52°24′00.00″ North, longitude 1°30′36.00″ West.


Coventry is a nice place to visit, although some say our best town planning was done by the Luftwaffe.

Currently about 50% of the streets have been mapped, though points of interest and amenities are largely un-surveyed (Though Pubs seem to be leading the way on the points of interest front).


During 2008-07, Sladen spent several days walking around the centre; most of the important buildings inside the Ring Road are now done, although the University side isn't. The Railway station and Canal Basin are now is good detail respectively. More clean GPS traces need collecting (eg. high-speed cycling at 5am in the morning) and everything aligning into place. Slow/walking GPS traces just get too much jitter.
