The £200 million project will include about 500 new homes including Laurence Hall, a palace with grand views of the M23. Shops, doctors, the whole lot!!!

This is just so cool, and having been using it via identical services from Vodafone and others (I remember telling them to do it), I felt privileged to use it on my travels around Gravesend in 1997.

I was so happy to see the results of all my hard work today as I flipped the switch and released my new hill shaded maps:
My brand new iPhone came in handy as I was able to use the long first class flights to and from Dubai to hand shade each pixel on every one of my 2,837,295,482 map tiles. Back when I was designing Google's original cartography, I always wanted to add hill shading - I was the first person to invent this particular method, which uses a real paintbrush and my iPhone's touch screen to add the craftsman's touch. Its lucky for the rest of the world that Google have patented the process to ensure it can be used for the good of humanity.
