Food and Drink Map

Food and Drink Map

All the places in Ilkley where it is possible to satisfy your food and beverage needs have been mapped in this application. The outlets have been separated into four distinct categories - Restaurants, Cafes, Bars and Takeaways.

Simple Swipe Map

Simple Swipe Map

Drag the central bar to reveal either the road map on the left or the satellite imagery on the right - both courtesy of Bing Maps. The two maps are fully synchronised so panning or zooming one of the maps will automatically adjust the other. Go on, zoom into the area of your house - you know you want to.

Geology Map

Geology Map

This application shows three sets of data served up by the BGS. Namely, Solid bedrock geology, Surface geological cover and Boreholes from their database. Each different layer is accessed from an accordian style menu on the left of the application.

Postal Facilities

Postal Facilities

Well on the off-chance that you don't know where your nearest post box or post office is you might want to check out the Postal Facilities in Ilkley map. The post code polygons have been calculated from point location values which is why they look slightly strangely shaped but they should be accurate in the vast majority of locations.

Flickr Photos Map

Flickr Photos Map

This application maps all of the geotagged photos on Flickr, the online photo management and sharing application. As always this is centred around the Ilkley region.

Walking Routes

Walking Routes

Measure distances and plot elevation profiles for a series of predfined walks around Ilkley. Alternatively create your own walk/run/cycle ride and check out the elevation changes along the route. The map and the profile are linked interactively.

Old Photos Map

Old Photos Map

A map showing the geo-tagged locations of Old Photographs in Ilkley. The current set of photos are shown by kind permission of Francis Frith, Bradford Libraries and English Heritage.

Historic OS Maps

Historic OS Maps

An application that compares three old Ordnance Survey maps from three different periods (1955-61, 1937-61, and 1920's) side by side. The maps are at varying scales and from different time periods so allow the viewer to compare and contrast Ilkley over the years.

Ancient Sites

Ancient Sites

There are many such ancient sites all over Britain but the local Moors are particularly abundant in these historic locations. The sites on my map are taken largely from either the Megalithic Portal website or the Ancient Antiquarian website.

Ilkley in 3D

Tweets in the Ilkley region

Tweets in the Ilkley region

Mapping spatially enabled 'tweets' from Twitter, the online news and social networking service where users post and interact with messages, restricted to 140 characters. The map will only pick up tweets from devices with their location services turned on.

Parish Boundaries

Parish Boundaries

A map showing the civil parishes in the Ilkley area. Undoubtedly not the most interesting map on the site but it does contain useful web links to the civil council web-sites.

Where Is My Nearest...?

Where Is My Nearest...?

Where is my nearest ....? Select a point on the map and cycle through the options to check where your nearest ATM, medical facility, school etc. Optionally increase the search radius

Live Weather Map

Live Weather Map

Two maps on this page. The larger map at the top is courtesy of MeteoEarth and shows the current level of cloud cover and precipitation if there is any. Clicking on the map will redirect you to the MeteoEarth website. This map does not always work in Microsoft Internet Explorer so I would suggest using Google Chrome or Firefox as your default browser.

PHILOSOPHY

Ilkley Maps is a 'not-for-profit' project designed for the benefit of visitors and the residents of Ilkley alike. The intention is to show off the best of Ilkley in a series of digital, interactive mapping applications. The philosophy of the site is to Inform - Educate - Inspire - Entertain and as such will include a wide variety of maps that will range from the very useful to the somewhat esoteric, but hopefully will be appreciated by someone. The website is intended to be a community site and will therefore be dependent on input from the users to both keep the site up to date but also to suggest other topics or subjects that would benefit from being presented in map form. The site is run by a resident of the town so should always be 'current' but please get in touch with us if you see any inaccuracies or mistakes so that we can rectify any problems.
