London Marathon Mapped

London Marathon Mapped

We've teamed up with Londonist to map a slightly different side to the London Marathon. Check out our interactive map to find out the location of pubs and toilets along the route and the best places to load up with carbs before and after the race.

Happy New Year & Happy 2nd Emuversary

You may not have realised this, but today is World GIS Day (Geographic Information Systems for those of you who aren't familiar with the term), which celebrates everything that technology has brought to mapping, location and geospatial analysis.
