Sports Map

Stephen Miller has posted details of his sports map prototype to the BBC backstage site.

This prototype allows a user to centre the map on their home town, or anywhere else in the UK, and find out which local team and which premier league team is closest.

BBC feeds for both teams will then be shown (unless a premiership club is closest, in which case only the one team is shown).

I have checked it out (for Cardiff naturally), and it seems to work a treat.

He says, "this is not targeted solely at providing a sport release, but at showing what is possible to stimulate more ideas!"

I think it is a wonderful worked example that demonstrates that the ideas that I outlined a week ago today for a similar system for Police appeals are certainly no pipe dream.

You can try his system for yourself by clicking here.
