Feedmap?

I removed my link to feedmap.net today. It used to provide links to blogs geographically close to yours, along with a nice map. For a while now it has been saying that my blog is in The Sound in Wales, and the clickable map is gone.

GeoURL provides a similar capability.

Sydney cycle routes

I have been doing some work on the Open Street Map Wiki to document the state of cycle routes in Sydney.

Sydney Cycle Routes

The idea is to show the level of completeness of the OSM map, and give a link to the map (and relation where they exist).

Cycling

After planning a new bike for a long time my wife was kind enough to buy me a Trek 7.2 FX for my birthday recently. I have only managed a few rides, but so far it's a great bike. I look forward to being a cyclist again.

Australian suburbs on Open Street Map

After weeks of preparation the import of Australian suburb boundaries into Open Street Map is now under way. Thanks to the helpful people at the Australia Bureau of Statistics who made the data available and to Franc for persevering with it.

See a sample map for Summer Hill. The suburb boundaries are the light dotted lines.
