>I would like to announce that the fine city of Kingston Upon Hull (Hull
>to its friends and 'Ull to its locals) has all its public roads and many
>of its amenities completed. Almost all of the city was mapped by Jean
>and me by driving or walking around it. We have taken about 10,000
>photos (my camera rolled its number over about a month ago) and visited
>every single public road in the city. We've added schools, cemeteries,
>pubs, allotments, parks and some shops all by visiting them with a GPS
>and camera - the Y! images are only lo-res and have been useful only for
>large scale stuff like some railways, waterways and the docks.
>We have seen the city in a new light - some of it is run down, but much
>of it is doing very nicely. I have enjoyed the experience greatly
>(though some housing estates have been a bore) and now I look forward to
>helping complete the East Riding of Yorkshire next year.
