Cycle Map – 13th September

I haven’t changed any rendering yet (despite promises to Richard about the national byway), but I might get a chance to do that later this week. For now, it’s only the routes that have been added:

For the last one, Dave and I actually cycled to Uxbridge, so there’s still more to add. But with the TIGER import running and the continuing expansion of the database, tagging is becoming a pain as everything grinds to a halt. Hopefully either Dave or I will put the rest of the 61 into the database before too long.

Cycle Map updates

New this week in rendering:

  • New higher-zoom (z15) areas around Edinburgh and Bristol
  • Non-toucan crossings rendered as yellow dots, as seen along the Ipswich Ring-road
  • Sustrans “Regional Cycle Routes” now rendered in a lighter shade of blue, to distinguish them from Local cycle networks, as seen in the greater Ipswich area and in the impressive coverage of Kent
  • Various little tweaks to the rendering styles

More importantly, new routes spring up all the time. This week includes:

The NCN 6 is an interesting one – Dave and I cycled the Grand Union stretch on Saturday, and I wonder who did the other two bits further north – were there three groups all working independently this week on the same route? As more and more of the routes have at least some of the sections marked, the next task will be to join them all together.

If anyone has any other areas that they want higher detail rendered, or spot any other new sections recently added, feel free to leave a comment.
