We’ve been hinting for a while about a secret project that we’re working on, and today I’m pleased to be able to take the wraps off Mapumental . It’s currently in Private Beta but invites are starting to flow out. Built with support from Channel 4′s 4IP programme, Mapumental is the culmination of an ambition mySociety has had for some time – to take the nation’s bus, train, tram, tube and boat timetables and turn them into a service that does vastly more than imagined by traditional journey planners. In its first iteration it’s specially tuned to help you work out where else you might live if you want an easy commute to work.
Notice anything different? We’ve been working on the interface design, read more about it on the blog . Oakland Crimespotting is an interactive map of crimes in Oakland and a tool for understanding crime in cities. If you hear sirens in your neighborhood, you should know why. Crimespotting makes this possible with interactive maps, e-mail updates , and RSS feeds of crimes in areas that you care about.
