Walking can be a quick and easy way to get around, particularly when travelling during the busiest times, which are 08:00-09:00 and 17:30-18:30 Monday to Friday. This map shows how many steps it takes to walk between stations on the same line. For more walking maps, visit tfl.gov.uk/walking.
Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open-source set of tools which help organizations author, field, and manage mobile data collection solutions. ODK provides an out-of-the-box solution for users to:
- Build a data collection form or survey (XLSForm is recommended for larger forms);
- Collect the data on a mobile device and send it to a server; and
- Aggregate the collected data on a server and extract it in useful formats.
In addition to socio-economic and health surveys with GPS locations and images, ODK is being used to create decision support for clinicians and for building multimedia-rich nature mapping tools. See the list available tools, featured deployments, and implementation companies for more examples of what the ODK community is doing.
Find maps and other imagery, upload, and rectify against a real map.
You can then download and use the rectified map in your mapping applications.
Just sign up and you can start uploading and get warping!
Geopaparazzi is a tool developed to do very fast qualitative engineering/geologic surveys.
Even if the main aim is in the field of surveying, it contains tools that can be of great use also to OpenStreetMappers as well as tourists that want to keep a geo-diary.
The main aim of Geopaparazzi is to have a tool that:
- fits in any pocket and can be always at hand, when needed
- gives the possibility to take georeferenced and possibly orientated pictures during a survey, with further possibility to import them into GIS applications like uDig or QGis
- is able to easily exploit an internet connection, if available
- is extremely easy to use and intuitive, providing just few important functionalities
The main features available in Geopaparazzi are:
- georeferenced notes
- georeferenced and oriented pictures
- gps track logging
- form-based data surveys
- easy export of collected data
- a map view for navigation with support for raster tiles and spatialite vector data
gvNIX is an open source tool for rapid application development (RAD) with which you can create Java web applications in minutes.

Copernicus Land Monitoring Services – The European Earth Observation Programme
Copernicus is a European system for monitoring the Earth. Data is collected by different sources, including Earth observation satellites and in-situ sensors. The data is processed and provides reliable and up-to-date information about six thematic areas: land, marine, atmosphere, climate change, emergency management and security. The land theme is divided into four main components:
- Global. The Global Land Service provides a series of bio-geophysical products on the status and evolution of the land surface at global scale at mid and low spatial resolution. The products are used to monitor the vegetation, the water cycle and the energy budget.
- Pan-European. The pan-European component provides information about the land cover and land use (LC/LU), land cover and land use changes and land cover characteristics. The latter includes information about imperviousness, forests, natural grasslands, wetlands, and permanent water bodies.
- Local. The local component focuses on different hotspots, i.e. areas that are prone to specific environmental challenges and problems. This includes detailed LC/LU information for the larger EU cities (Urban Atlas), riparian zones along European river networks and NATURA 2000 sites. It will also include maps of coastal areas.
- In-situ. All of the Copernicus services need access to in-situ data in order to ensure an efficient and effective use of Copernicus space-borne data. Next to data provided by participating countries, Earth observation from space also yields pan-European reference datasets, such as a Digital Elevation Model.
Open and seamless SPOI data set, which is based on Linked data principles, contains over 23 million Points of Interest important for tourism from Europe and Africa.
The Open Transport Map allows routing and dynamic visualization of traffic volumes. It also offers many other ways of innovative exploitation. The underlying data are accessible in an open INSPIRE compatible format.
What is it?
– is suitable for routing
– visualizes time related Traffic Volumes (in OTN Pilot Cities)
Talking technical, the Open Transport Map
– can serve as a map itself as well as a layer embedded in your map
– is derived from the most popular open dataset – OpenStreetMap
– is accessible via both GUI and API
– covers the whole European Union
Other information resources
– presentation (cz)
Navigation (Android only)
- Works totally offline (no roaming charges when you are abroad) but also has a (fast) online option
- Turn-by-turn voice guidance (recorded and synthesized voices)
- Announce traffic warnings like stop signs, pedestrian crosswalks, or when you are exceeding the speed limit.
- Optional lane guidance, street name display, and estimated time of arrival
- Supports intermediate points on your itinerary
- Automatic re-routing whenever you deviate from the route
- Search for places by address, by type (e.g.: restaurant, hotel, gas station, museum), or by geographical coordinates
- Carry highly detailed, fully offline maps of any region world wide on your device!
- Display your position and orientation on the map
- Optionally align the map according to compass or your direction of motion
- Save your most important places as Favorites
- Display POIs (points of interest) around you
