    Default The Grid and The Old Garage, Wandsworth (Southfields)

    These two pubs are right next door to each other, so on the map page the green blobs are directly on top of the other. As I, and I guess others, sometimes use the maps to find nearby pubs the one underneath could easily get overlooked. Is it possible that they could be slightly shifted so the other peeks out beneath?

    I hope I'm not being too picky!

    I've found a few examples of this during my wanderings, and is a product of them both having exactly the same postcode. What I've done in these cases is go and have a look at them to see where they are in relation to each other, and then move the green blobs myself. Do you know the pubs, and where they should really be? If so, you can move the blobs. If they are next to each other and the blob is in the right place for both then just move one of the blobs (as you suggest) so that one peeps out from behind the other. Or else one of us will just have to go and have a look!

    Of course Rex, I never thought of that!

    I'll have a go.

    (I thought you were in York?)


    Edit...just done it and it works. You are right, there are bound to be plenty of such instances.

    At the moment I don't have time to come up with a system wide solution to duplicate points, it is on the to do list when I rewrite the map code. But as Rex says you can always split them yourself by using the correct map point button.
