[OSM-talk] IoW and Mapchester - Visualisation Toolkits

I've got some coastline data from 
http://www.maproom.psu.edu/cgi-bin/dcw/dcwcountry0.cgi (now defunct) 
that I've cleaned up. And some C++ code to read in the polygons. I was 
never entirely certain over the copyright of this data and it did show 
me cycling through Morecambe Bay rather than along side it.

Yours if you want it.
