Notes on the Pink Floyd in London and Cambridge maps
A special thank you to Chairman of Music Heritage UK Trustees, Chris, who is a huge Pink Floyd fan and led the research for these maps!
Bibliography - online
We used a number of online sources as part of our research:
- Pink Floyd's official site
- The best online Pink Floyd fan sites: Brain Damage and Neptune Pink Floyd
- Pink Floyd Archives
- The French map, 'Sur Les Traces du Floyd' was a huge help
- The excellent I Spy Syd in Cambridge website
- A number of online articles, reviews and features in places like The Guardian, The Independent and The Daily Telegraph
Bibliography - offline
As well as web-based sources, we also used a number of books as part of our research, including in no particular order:
- Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd by Nick Mason.
Most images come from a variety of creative common sources (including Wikipedia and related sites, Flickr) and are linked to at the bottom of each entry. Music Heritage UK is a charity and all images are included for historical/educational/cultural purposes only. Every effort was made to find the original owners.
If you are the image rights holder, and would like your content removed, please email us here and we'll look into it and take down the offending item.
Our maps currently use the Carto platform (formerly "CartoDB") as it has given us the best in terms of flexibility and presentation. The images are hosted externally on Ultra IMG. For more on why we chose these services, their limitations, and our next steps in terms of adding extra functionality, please see our blog post around our Stones in London map which summarised our findings from working on our first map.
Proud to use the platform.
Mistakes? Additions? Ideas? Future themes?
Before you ask... please bear in mind we're on version one of our map platform, and we currently can't embed content from YouTube, Spotify or elsewhere! We're working on bringing this functionality to our maps in the future.
However, please do get in touch with us if there's something else we've missed, got wrong or simply forgot about! We'd love to hear from you!
If you like what we've done, and want to support our work on future music maps and adding new functionality to them, please donate to Music Heritage UK now! Your gift will go a long way in helping us to release more music maps!
