→ Walks.IO – OpenStreetMap Mashup

A very clever mashup that combines OSM with data from Ordnance Survey, Natural England, English Heritage, Canal and River Trusts to programatically generate circular walks from rail and tube stations.

Walks.io is a state of the art outdoor activity planner that uses artificial intelligence and open data. Taking into account various information available from governmental bodies such as locations of national parks, heritage coasts, listed buildings and many others it plans the most attracting walking route that tries to avoid busy roads and leads through as many natural and urban landmarks as possible.

Put another way, the Advertising department has a lot of money to spend; the Photo department does not.
