This week is the 103rd anniversary of the end of hostilities on the Western Front in World War I, traditionally commemorated as the end of the war.
As such we thought it was appropriate to invite James Morley
on to the podcast to tell the story of his
A Street Near You
project. James first presented the project to the Geomob community at a London Geomob event back in 2019
where he deservedly won the SplashMaps best speaker prize.
Steven and James discuss the project which became a powerful example of the deeply emotional impact of location, but also a great story of how James, without any deep technical skills, created such a popular site. They explore the motivations behind the project, the technical challenges, and the response from the public.
