Mapping Project

As I was driving around the City of London yesterday I had a thought. While that is nothing unique, I try to have at least one thought a day, the specific thought was.

How great would it be if London became one of the best commerically mapped cities in Canada? Based on google’s user generated maps, we could input the location of businessess around the Forest City.

That all it is really, quite a simple thought, and I don’t think it would be a complicated project. So who is interested?

  • @picard102 Exactly what I think. Do you want to come with me to tell that to the City of London which seeks to regulate private property? #
  • @thatcomputerguy We have enough private clubs I follow small independent bands and I dont see the loss of the Wick as affecting London stops #
  • I wonder, was there a huge cry and complaining when the Cedar Lounge disappeared? Or all of Talbot Block music venues? #
  • Since many Londoners don’t know what I’m talking about: #
  • @thatcomputerguy I think we can agree on that! #
  • Does anyone know how big the lot that the wick is on really is? Because what ever is built can’t be that close to the road anymore. #
  • @billdeys Nope, there are setbacks in place mind you its only a couple of meters but they will never get that close again. I #

  • @KVL I was able to get fring to make a skype call on my touch. I just need to pick up that headphone and I’ll have a nice apple VOIP #
  • @KVL Yeah, it was only one way. #
  • Desk is a mess left over from last week. #

  • @PhillyMac_Biz Good day Phillip! I’m doing great! How about yourself? #
  • Switching to a bit of Brian Jonestown Massacre. #
  • @PhillyMac_Biz I agree. It always nice to start to see tangible results even if they are just the early stages. Good job! #

  • @DougVos Well Well, look who I’ve stumbled upon here! #
  • @rebelliousgirl Not until January :) #
  • @rebelliousgirl Its all a part of ensuring that they aren’t totally killed off, hunting during staging would allow more to die. Silly really #
  • @KVL Did you do regulation mapping when you were at UTRCA? #
  • @fowgre Almost everyone agrees that the goose popluations is way to high and they should be culled. #

  • Leaving the office. Got to hurry home. #

  • @fowgre , despite what doomsayer claim, the earth can still support our population. There are not enough resources for current geese # #
  • @fowgre Its the same thing as the number of deer in Sifton Bog. We need to get out of this mentality that managing wildlife is a bad thing. #
  • Know what would be good? If I could skype Rogers about my wireless bill… #
