Innovative mappings of London

If you share my fascination with maps, and have London ancestry, check out to sample some of the creative things that can be done these days.

Look at the city's ethnic diversity today at What would it have looked like in 1881?

Amongst the modern maps are a few enhanced historic maps, such as John Snow's 1854 Cholera map, and this (apparently incomplete) murder map.

That's terrific John, about the maps, I mean. I walked the course of the Fleet River (I have a familial connection to Fleet Street) in 2010, and enjoyed it hugely. Cheers.
