Pre-2011 update

Just a quick update. Working on 2 new ideas.

1) Working on extending the website to include pages on amenities close to other amenities. So all banks in the vicinity of a certain supermarket listed in the directory, or all restaurants next to a certain pub. Im starting to get precise locations for all the amenities in the database in a longitude, latitude format and with this I can make this task possible. I thought it would be very useful for site visitors. So… you’ve spent all day shopping in the Boxing Day and New Year sales and you want a restaurant next to a Sainsbury’s store. Or… you’ve had a big night on the town and want to find a takeaway near the pub you’re drinking your last drink in. Etc etc. Anyway. The code is working well and I’m going to upload the new functionality in the next few days.

2) Ever so slightly related I guess. I’m getting data on ATM locations. I hope this too will be a very useful addition to the database.

Happy New Year
