Awesome. And the next time someone complains that OSM is unusable
because it's not complete or accurate, we can point out that map.
Having spent eight years of my life at Imperial College, I know that
Princes Gardens (directly under the letters "RGS-IBG") is a through
road... But even that obvious a problem that close to the venue
doesn't detract from how useful the map is nonetheless.
