After a request from Tom Chance I've created a strange little fork of musical chairs based on the allotment point data released by the London datastore ( http://data.london.gov.uk/datastore/package/allotment-locations ).

The algorithm isn't really designed for this sort of matching ( it's far more concerned with names rather than absolute spatial location ), it still does a pretty good job of indicating whether there's a landuse=allotments way in close proximity to a datastore allotment.


Anyway, it's a fun way for londoners to check whether they've got all their local allotments and if they've got the name "right".
