In January I was at the Wherecamp.eu in Rome, and recorded most of the talks that happened. I have now uploaded those talks to YouTube for the wider community to be able to watch.

Currently there are some bug fixes in the Carto code base which isn’t in the currently released Tile Mill which I was wanting to make use of. This is the commands that are needed in case someone else needs that info when running Tile Mill as an Ubuntu Service. cd /usr/share/tilemill sudo npm install carto@latest… Continue reading Updating to the latest Carto in Tile Mill when running on an Ubuntu service
This year at State of the Map Scotland 2012 I spoke about the ITO Map tool to highlight the more detailed OpenStreetMap data available, which generally isn’t shown on maps.

In total it was about 115 miles (the last 4 miles were from Bromley South station home). The total… Continue reading Cycling: London to Dover via Margate and Ramsgate
With the extra eating over Christmas, I’ve started out on my (evening) cycling again. On the 1st of January I headed out East and got to Rochester before getting on the train home. On the way near to Ebbsfleet International I found a rather interesting sign that I just had to take a picture of.… Continue reading New Year cycling
