I've set a homework assignment for the London Mapping Party a week on Wednesday. Time to sort out those building outlines!
If it looks like I'm starting to run out of ideas for London mapping parties... it's because I am. However this is one thing I have been meaning to experiment with for a while. A tweak to the normal mapping party format, as an attempt to tackle some of the problems of detail level in Central London. We've been doing pretty well at scattering node features everywhere recently, but as I've already mentioned landuse around Marble Arch is bugging me, and building outlines are even worse. Some parts of London now have lots of building outlines drawn in. On the one hand they're making the map look beautiful in these areas, but on the other hand they create a rather ugly imbalance. The solution is obvious, and delightfully inevitable. We have to map 'em all!
Not sure if this "homework" idea is going to work well though. We'll give it a try, and anyone who doesn't do it is getting detention! Get drawing those buildings in, then come along on Wednesday 16th!
