    Lightbulb Mapping Resource


    Just something that may be usefull to some, for those open to it the Linux distro Ubuntu allows free downloading of a programme called Tango GPS. It is a simple mapping programme that downloads free open source maps and sattelite pictures - very handy as it means they are on your laptop and can be used without an internet connection. Then as the name implies, you can plug in a GPS dongle and turn your sattelite image/map into a type of satnav......well handy for thrashing through the undergrowth in search of or making lat and long note of 'derelict sites'.

About us
DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
