Alpha UK Member of Parliament Google Map
Inspired by the Google Earth US election file last year we’ve been developing a UK equivalent. The current development is raw and in an alpha phase but ready to put on our website (without links for the moment).
We want the Google Earth and Map to provide a wide range of information, such as MP newsletters, links to their website, possibly skype numbers, interactive surveys about national and local issues to name but a few.
We’d also like to add a simple search so you find your local MP however I think the Ordanance Survey’s flagrant stance on postal codes may restrict this for some time.
You find your local MP at our page here: find your mp
As already mentioned this is very much alpha so here is the current issue list:
move MP names to constituency within menu
add in Northern Ireland
add a total uk picture
update kml file
clean up information boxes
move scale back one?
can new window be any better?
find distinct url
add wufoo forms
special majority map
evaluate what content can be driven
find a space for front page theyworkforyou.com
add in geocoded MP search (fat chance)
This pretty much could not have been completed without the great work completed by www.theyworkforyou.com.
