Missed London Mapping Marathon Yesterday

First up, this is my first post on my self hosted wordpress blog. I have imported all the posts and comments from my old blog into this one for future reference.

Last night I skipped going to the London Mapping Marathon event out in Chiswick. It is the first London Mapping Marathon Event that I have missed so far. It seems that it was the busiest mapping party in the marathon yet, with the cake not being big enough, so the mappers have had to be creative and create extra slices off the map. Hopefully in future event we will get more people to say that they are going along on upcoming, so that there is more publicity, since the event will come to the top of the popular events list.

I instead went along to the Southwark Park Road walkabout. In comparison was rather quiet. Last week we had the mapping party in the area to name the road, with some good progress. Unfortunately the people there are unlikely to become mappers, but are more likely to become users of the data, such as where the cycle routes are. Especially when they are more complete and in a paper form. While on the walkabout, I did collect some more data.

How do you tag a market that is in a pedestrian area, during the day, but by night you can hardly tell that there is a market there (other than the high power sockets)?
