Organised by two students Alistair Leak and Ian Morton from the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, the map has brought out some great insights into what people think of their city.

Alistair and Ian were keen that all contributors get a mention by making sure they signed around the edges. You can see some of them in action below.
