Mashing up the London Underground

It's marginally more fun than watching paint dry, or receiving SMS messages telling you all the trains on your tube line are knackered for the rest of the day, and it's the result of some clever shits mashing up live departure data from the Transport for London API, with Google Maps:

Bitterwallet - London Underground mashup

The result? All the yellow pins represent the near-live locations of tube trains on the underground. Of course the same API data is available in a far more convenient form for commuters, specifically for smartphone apps - but this is far prettier to look at. You can stare aimlessly at the mashup for yourself here.

    One thing I would like to say is that often before purchasing more personal computer memory, consider the machine in which it could be installed. When the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, the memory threshold is 3.25GB. Putting in above this would just constitute any waste. Make sure one's motherboard can handle the actual upgrade amount, as well. Great blog post.

What do you think?
