Ewan's Local Authority planning tool - a map

Mapeastlothian East Lothian hold a Celebrating Success day every two years. I was lucky enough to make it along this year and spotted some projects which would benefit so much from being online, either so that others can learn from interesting ideas or so that the schools' own projects could become more collaborative ventures and move on to the next level. Here are some of the projects I saw that captured my imagination. You'll notice a lack of links: it's time these guys get blogs!

It's on a CommunityWalk so that you can actually see where the school is and what kind of environment it is in. Head right in now. Anyone can add a comment. If you want to add your school and some ideas, just get in touch with me through the blog right here.

This looks like a great piece of work. It is actually quite similar to a Google Earth Fly through that I am creating showing the location of our cluster schools and destinations for our school trips. I’ve successfully linked it to Flickr, but having some problems getting little snippets of video to play (I think that’s just me rather than the software!) I’ll let you have the URL when I have finished. You probably already know this, but you can get Google Maps to play directly in your blog entry. I don’t see any reason why the Community Walk maps wouldn’t play in a post as well (unless I’m missing something?) This is the URL to the widget that I have been playing around with http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/37415887-e8dd-4113-9e66-7c2547024d60?category=mapstraffic . See you soon, Ollie.

I didn't know about that and thanks for the link. If we can insert video easily then we've got something a lot better than communitywalk. Thanks for sharing and let me know if you get it to work.
