Hello OpenGuiders! Here is my new OpenGuides
I hope you like it.
Well, that was a resounding silence.
Me like. But I almost never go into Croydon these days and so probably
won't actually *use* it.
Along-the-street navigation: Because this is a
completists' guide, the
aim is to include every business on every street within our area of
interest (something that I believe the Oxford Guide is also planning
to do). This means that it makes sense to have some visual way of
showing a place's neighbours. On CGC I've done this with a set of 5
thumbnails at the bottom of each page, showing the two neighbours on
either side. See e.g.
This is excellent. However, I have two nits to pick.
First, the second row should have Forbidden Planet on it, for
consistency with the top row. But I think I'd prefer that the neighbour
for something on a corner be the road itself, and not what's the other
side of the road.
Second, have you thought about how to handle vertical neighbours? When
there's only two floors, they'll normally have two separate entrances
onto the street, so you can just list them in order of their entrances,
but when there are three floors under separate occupation (there are
lots of these - shop on the ground floor, accountant on the first,
lawyer on the second, for example) then all the upper floors normally
share one entrance from the street. You occasionally even get multiple
businesses sharing one entrance on the ground floor.
