Attention UK Google Maps API'ers: Create a mashup and win a prize!

Don't delay! Hack a public service data map today!

IdealGovernment.com is offering up a prize in a contest to create the best map-mashup that pulls together publically accessible UK data:

To win the prize, hack together some government data with a free online map, and send a short description and a link to Ideal Government during July or August. Show us what's possible in terms of locating public-sector data (schools, crimes, hazardous waste dumps, high-spending councils, whatever) on maps as easy to use as Google. Five lucky winners will each receive a personalised full-scale full-sized Ordnance Survey map (Explorer or Landranger) centred on your home or anywhere you want in Britain.
