Yes another story about OS monopoly

Wed, 08 Sep 2010

This time though its the Monopoly boardgame and OS have created a modern map showing the locations of monopoly squares in London. The end result is a fun piece of work, even if it's not a staggering piece of cartography. Shame its only available as a low-res GIF (unless Ive missed something) because you can't read much. Not sure why it hasn't been created as either a high-res raster or vectorised PDF give that VectorMap is available as part of OpenData. And of course it's not as simple as you might expect; besides some of the locations being area based (e.g. Mayfair), others represent quite long roads. And we now have a location for the mythical "Go" square. That's not to stop people griping that the "Go" square is wrong or that some of the other locations are inaccurately placed.
