As part of a project I’m working on for the Hackney Citizen, I’m creating a comprehensive map of a lot of different stuff going on in Hackney. One thing that would be particularly useful would be ward boundaries, ultimately comprising the area of the whole borough.
Much to my surprise, I could not find a single omnibus Hackney ward shapefile anywhere online. Thus I’ve created one, attached to this blog post.
All boundaries courtesy of mapit.mysociety.org; all I really did was save each of their KML files and compile them together as a folder in Google Earth. Nothing too crazy-difficult, but hopefully should save somebody half an hour further down the road.
