currently working on some mapping extensions to the Brent East Campaigning website. I plan to show a map of the Borough of Brent and to overlay various political informations such as the elected representatives for the wards both at local and national level. I’ll begin with a map and just mash in some datasources that I will build myself. I need to build them by hand as Brent Council supply only a limited amount of information in machine readable format and what is made available in not geo-coded so it is unknown where the information refers to.

when I’ve done with the basic overlays I’ll drag in other information from places such as QPARA, brentbrain and display headlines from those sites as news feeds.

I will look at the wirelesslondon tools for building such a spaticalinformationportal and see if I can get them running.
