UK Google Maps Mashup Roundup Part 5

London Tube Journey Planner adds bus routes - The previously mentioned London Tube Journey Planner tool has added a new bus routing search covering 350 bus routes that span 1265 bus stops. Geo-developer Dean Larman-Moore has this to say: "Its no surprise that most routes are quicker by tube but there are some that are quicker by bus Totteridge & Whetstone -> Arnos Grove is one example." Dean has also updated the map view by adding 2 more zoom levels, new satellite and hybrid overlays and a new postcode search.

UK Speed Camera Map undergoes a major update - If you're a motorist in the UK hopefully you have already checked out this mashup by Ben Charlton. It features a total of 10,420 speed and red light cameras mashed up on a Google Map. Of those 3831 are Gatso, Monitron and Truvelo cameras, 5419 Mobiles, 28 Temporary, 158 SPECS and 984 Redlight Cameras. For each camera type you can view the speed limit and camera type. Much of the improvement is due to Ben's update to Google Maps API V.2 (update before Nov/06) for the map.
