FWIW, the University of Oxford has an 800th Birthday coming up soon.


The geo coordinates, founding dates etc. for the Colleges and Halls are
available on the University site.  The lo-res sunrise and sunset data is
available in spreadsheets at http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/solcalc/calcdetails.html

My offering has some *cough* complete lack of artistic promise and bandwidth crushing size *cough* limitations, but I had fun :-)  It would be nice to see this *cough* done well *cough* duplicated.

Interesting work. It's a way to go for linking OpenStreetMap data and Wikimapia data with Wikipedia and each other etc.. I don't know the state of play with how OpenStreetMap or Wikimapia are currently doing this, but I like to think that someone at the recent Maptember events in Nottingham, UK hopefully does and might provide some feedback...
