Highlighted in Mapping London

2 min read

Mapping London is a project by James Cheshire and Ollie O’Brien who collect, highlight and share best London maps in their independent blog. James Cheshire is a co-author of a book LONDON: The Information Capital featuring many data maps of the city. Both editors, James and Ollie are academics/researchers in UCL Department of Geography.

This week I was thrilled to see they highlighted the London walking maps I’ve been working on this month. Posted by Ollie A Walk in the Urban Woods features three maps with great comments from the team, who like the method of showing just the parks that are the focus as an effective and attractive way of highlighting the walk.

Mapping London really likes the strong design elements of these maps – greens and blues, and plenty of white space to present a decluttered look. You might know some or all of these parks already, if you live in London – but did you know you can link them together efficiently in this way?

Coming from true mapping experts this is a serious praise and really encourages more mapping work in the future! 🙂
