The PointShare has the ability to drill down further in geographic areas 
that have more administrative data.  As far as I know this isn't the case 
with the United Kingdom yet though since I live in the UK perhaps I should 
make this available to Shane.  Having said that, it isn't a huge priority 
at the minute so if anyone else  would like to make that data available to 
Shane then cool!

Your IP appears to possibly be coming from London so if this is the case 
then put in the following:

Latitude: 51.517
longitude: -0.105

If this isn't the case then send me your postcode off-list and I'll sort 
out more accurate coordinates for you.

On the topic of the PointShare, I will endeavour  to upload an updated set 
of points including 60000 + street related points plus the 350000  plus 
transportation-related points and of course my personal points too!

Too much to do and not enough time!

Best regards,
