It's a month since I last posted a message to the site and it certainly feels like it's been a busy one! I currently have five pieces of coursework on the go - from mapping St Paul's Cathedral and the area around it in 3D, to working out how to put together a new GIS system, to analysing crime hotspots in London, to designing a computer program to calculate the area of polygons and even writing a social science essay. What a busy time! It's lucky that most of the projects are very interesting and are teaching me so many valuable practical skills.
In my 'spare' time yesterday I added a little mapping feature to each of my photo galleries to show roughly where in the world the place is. It's only simple at the moment but I hope to be able to expand what it does and make the mapping more useful and interesting for users. Being able to create maps on the fly would be great to help users navigate around the galleries. I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but never got around to it. When I found an article basically doing all the work for me, how could I not do it?
