Interesting tube map project

Ambitious but useful

Dominic Sayers got in touch with me a few days ago with the idea for a collaborative tube resource inspired by Astrid Kirchner's art project
Living In A Tube Map which we blogged in December.

Basically he wants to try to bring together a user edited resource linked to a clickable tube map so you could find out a whole range of netty things based on or around a particular tube station.

He said: "It's a bit difficult to explain without HTML so I posted a bit more
detail here and I have made a rough start here

So each station would have piccies of or around the station, a webcam, streetmap link, bloggers who live nearby, search engine links to the station, the list could go on and on and include wikipedia entries, official TFL or tubeplanner.com info about the station etc etc. Personally I think it's a great idea (but very ambitious) and if anyone has any thoughts or would like to help out with the project please leave comments below or email Dominic directly.
