London Google Maps mashup with what’s on listings
The LondonPaper has launched a website which mashes up Google Maps with up-to -date listings data to provide a service which will also be available by mobile phone using Monilink.
They (News International, Rupert Murdoch) call it “The London Knowledge” and the listings information is apparently supplied by Londonparties, one of the best Time-Out style online guides to London nightlife. The checkbox allows you to map any or all locations for categories Cinema, Theatre, Comedy, Art shows, Live music, Nightclubs and ‘Something different’
The Search box accepts street name , venue or postcode for 5,000 listings of cinema showings, music gigs, theatre shows, club nights and art events for any specific day, so you can find out what’s on at the London theatres for example.
The one fatal drawback at this stage though, is NO PERMALINKS !
