Although I haven't blogged about it
yet, I've been spending a lot of my free time lately working on the
open street map
. This basically consists of wandering around with a GPS
device, and then later tagging the recorded trace so that it can be
used, for example, as a street map. The map for Bath is coming
along well, and I'll probably post some images when it lacks some
of the rather obvious holes that it has now (you didn't want to go
to Weston did you?).
One thing that has fascinated me though is the little thumbnails
the project generates for each trace uploaded to their website.
These take various different forms depending on the type of journey
being undertaken. I thought it would be fun to make some desktop
wallpaper out of them. The standard colour-scheme is black on white but I imagine some people
will prefer white on
I guess because the images use OSM data they are licensed under
a CC BY-SA license.
Let me know what you think. I'm sure a bit more creativity
wouldn't go amiss....
