INFORM * EDUCATE * INSPIRE * ENTERTAIN
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.
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.
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.
Blue Plaques Map
Brush up on your local history
A tour of the historical sites in Ilkley deemed worthy of a blue plaque. Take a tour around Ilkley's prestigious Blue Plaque sites. This application shows the plaque, the location and some information on the site. Users can navigate by selecting the plaque locations on the map or by scrolling through the thumbnail image ribbon at the bottom of the screen. Each location is then displayed to the left of the main map.
Historic Swipe Map
What did Ilkley look like 100 years ago?
Similar to the Simple Swipe map which compares a satellite image with a road map, the Historic Swipe Map compares an historical map from around 1900 with current day Ilkley. Swiping the central bar allows the user to see how Ilkley has changed over the last century with the Bartholomew half inch map (1897-1907) on the right and the current road map on the left. Due to inaccuracies in the original old map the maps aren't exactly aligned but are close enough to give meaningful results.
The Night Hendrix Came To Town
An Ilkley Maps take on the story of when rock legend Jimi Hendrix played a gig in a nursing home in Ilkley
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.
