A map of the UK with all clinical training courses marked

Postby maven » Tue Nov 04, 2008 2:27 pm

I wonder if anyone can download a graphic of a map of the UK and then use an art package to mark on it the location of each of the clincal courses (perhaps just a coloured line reaching from the point of location to a caption with the course name off the side of the map).

Anyone up for it?

Update: here it is!

Hi Maven-

I'd be happy to do it - what kind of scale do you want for the map? Something that will fit nicely onto a computer screen or something people can zoom into for more exact locations?

I've been looking for something to fill my time and this would be perfect as I'm going through the different courses at the moment myself (to decide where to apply).

I think something that will fit on screen would be best. We don't need to be able to zoom in and see street addresses, just approximately where in the country each course is situated.

Perhaps something like http://www.map-of-uk.com/images/map-of-uk.gif

Sounds exciting maybe we can also have a different colour highlighted for each of the course placement counties!

to me that map would be a bit "busy" with all the placenames on it. Maybe a map that just has the basic main cities on it so it is more clear where courses are...? It is going to be quite full with just the courses on there, let alone with all the other places too.


Maybe this - http://www.qub.ac.uk/directorates/sgc/a ... 584,en.gif ?

You can use Google Maps to do this incredibly easily.

You simply go to Google Maps, go to My Maps, start a new map. Use the cursor or type in Great Britain to focus on the region. Then type in the names of each of the cities/regions/streets/whatever that you want to mark and it will allow you to place a marker at the appropriate location, and you continue to place markers for however long you like.

The only downside to this method is that you can't directly import it into word, but if you do a screenshot of the map then you can easily paste the image into Word or PPT or whatever.

It'll take about 5 minutes, really simple.

Cheers for suggestions all!

If google maps will let me annotate I will use that- I'll try and not make it too busy or large etc!

Will try and get it done tomorrow :)

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post - I've been lurking here for a couple of weeks and have found some really useful information. I've done the google map suggested (couldn't sleep!), and thought I'd post it here as a thanks for all the good info that everyone has posted.

The google map is here:

Map of training courses

Thanks,

Neil

Wow neil,

That's fantastic and so useful. Thank you very much! (and there are even lovely links to pictures of the universities :))

Wish I was as productive as you when I couldn't sleep.

I'm afraid I can't take any credit for the pictures - they were already attached to the universities in google maps!

Wow that's really useful! :) There seems to be quite a big gap where the Bristol course was though. Has anyone heard any news about whether they'll be taking applications next time round?
