Mapping UK crime data HowTo

QGIS showing Essex street crimes
Local street crimes in Basildon, Essex

We will create a database and populate it with UK streets and incidents of street crime. We will then plot the crimes on an interactive map for further analysis.

We will create a PostgreSQL PostGIS database on the local machine. Eventually all our spatial data will be stored here.

Wakelin's Premium Coffee

Wakelin's Premium Coffee: elephant drinking hot coffee on its back using its trunkWakelin's Premium Coffee

Barclays Bank Chelmsford had a pop-up business section running in December this year.  I stopped to chat to the people from Wakelin's Premium Coffee who were there.  Apparently they are local, but do not trade here or have a web site at all.  They sold beans or ground beans at £2.50 for a 250g bag.  Two bags were purchased (blends, which are not my normal thing): House Blend and Italian Passion.

Shooting star in North Essex

In the early hours of this morning at 00:30 GMT I witnessed an unusal shooting star.  It was seen just North of Chelmsford, Essex with a South-to-North direction.  It lasted a couple of seconds and was yellowish in colour.  Its width was quite large and it was visible through the clouds.  What was it?  A satellite in polar orbit breaking up, perhaps?
