We had a lot of fun in The Bear pub in the Camberwell for last night's London Mapping meet-up
Which country is this? (The fat double-line is the Atlantic coast)
That's right. It was pub quiz night again! The above map-based question appeared. There was even an aerial imagery recognition question. All plain sailing for team "OpenStreetMap" you'll be pleased to hear. In fact we did pretty well on the whole quiz this time. We got really stuck on the first question, which was "Do you want to take part in the quiz?", but after much discussion we hit upon the correct answer, and went on to win! Our vast winnings (~£38) have been donated to the OpenStreetMap foundation.
Our team only won by half a point, although we did forfeit another point for having too many people. The victory was largely down to Stephen and Welshie who turn out to be far more generally knowledgeable than our previous pub quiz team.
Anyway... we did also map Camberwell, which provided one or two opportunities to eliminate NoName streets. Always fun.
The next London Mapping Event will be Wednesday Sept 16th. Just off Oxford Street. Nice and central.

Sorry not to have joined you in the pub! Though I'm not that great at the quizzes, I always "know" the answer about 5 mins too late :)

Yeah. This one was marginally easier than other quizzes I've been to. I think I knew about 5 or 6 answers out of the 30... But I think I knew about one answer which Stephen & Welshie hadn't already written down. Useless.

Nice. Not a bad prize at all. See, I knew we'd make money from these maps somehow, eventually!
