Map of UK Ice Rinks
« on: December 10, 2009, 11:59:37 PM »
Ive been playing with Bing Maps ... and created a Map of UK Ice Rinks.

http://www.icesk8.co.uk/

Try selecting the Birds Eye view of rinks  (select a pushpin / rink - then on the rink page select Bird eye)

Thank you ... i'm not sure what I could / should do with it so welcome any suggestions.

I have enabled any site owner to add an 'up to date' list of ice skating clubs to their own web site by just adding a single line of HTML with a page:

http://www.icesk8.co.uk/clubs.aspx


Also wondered what else I should add to the map - perhaps ice skating shops ?

The maps are really useful but could you add a link to an information page for each rink showing opening times?

There is a link on each page to the rink owners web site

e.g. http://icesk8.co.uk/rink.aspx?Basingstoke  has a link to Planet Ice site


>> isn't there still a rink at Bristol?

Yes - i have that covered ...

I have to say again ( I think I said it on another thread that  was linked to this one) that this map  is an  gift from heaven for me! Its invaluable when searching for jobs in the UK. Thank you!
But  why do I get job offers from areas without a rink?! I am now putting markers into my UK Road Atlas too, to make my searches as effective as possible.


I know this is a very old thread but if you are still looking to make the site even better, we could try put together descriptions of how to get to each rink. I personally need public transport and it is sometimes a bit tricky to find out. I am sure some other people would appreciate them too.
I am linking a very useful thread where people gave me advice about rinks in and around London.

Good map!  Streatham is currently Brixton (http://www.planet-ice.co.uk/arena/Brixton).  When I go to your Streatham page and click on 'Streatham ice arena', I get a random link page.
