Information is Beautiful as +David McCandless says, and what better way to beautify your (urban) analysis than this slick monochromatic version of OpenStreetMap . Everywhere, zoomable. Also available without words (maps.stamen.com/toner-lines).

Public transport isn't just about rolling stock and service intervals - information is key. TfL and Network Rail provide a huge amount of data to customers, and live bus / tube / train data is one of the most important pieces.

The data has many functions, from the banale (knowing when your next service is due) through to the sublime (like this mesmerising online map) - and a whole lot of government transparency in between. More places should insist on this as a priority.

The High Cost of Compliance
IPART's draft report highlights the tens of millions of dollars most each year by overregulation and duplication of approvals, where model codes and area plans would suffice.

Cooper Hart was a small cog in this wheel when, three years ago, it recommended s68 footpath restaurant approvals be standardised as of right - a recommendation that has now found its way into this report. We hope this makes its way into law, expanding the culture of outdoor dining in NSW (and perhaps providing a model for elsewhere - are you listening L.A?)

In fact we need to do a lot more to make our footpaths work harder - historic paths, regular (75m apart) benches, shade - the list goes on...

From the same author - some maps in support of High Speed Rail. This also ignores the effect of high speed rail in concentrating logistics and major commercial development along the corridor, which can further enhance its effectiveness as an alternative to air or road freight transport. It is also worth bearing in mind what is currently considered high speed - 350kmph - for those (read:Australia) looking at only second rate rail solutions.
