Innovative mappings of London

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

Look at the city's ethnic diversity today at http://names.mappinglondon.co.uk/. 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.
