- Flickr boundaries, now free to play with » Blog » tomtaylor.co.uk
I finished off the little tool that I used to generate yesterday’s map of Homerton and its neighbours’ boundaries, sourced from Flickr’s shapefiles. It’s called, rather boringly, Boundaries, and it’s available for you to poke. It’s pretty simple. You throw in a place name and it’ll attempt to find that place’s neighbours, using Yahoo GeoPlanet. For each of those neighbours, it uses the WOE ID to fetch and render the polygon from shapefile that Flickr returns.
