[Localise your Bloomsday map]

[9 Jun 2014: experimenting with streamlining Boston College map data; probably making a spreadsheet too]

I'm hoping local Bloomsday celebrations can use the map below to pick local landmarks approximately to scale. If you place this image (unzoomed!) side-by-side with Google Maps for your city, and zoom Google Maps so the scale matches the one-mile line in the lower left below, I think that will give you approximate startingpoints.

Black lines = Bloom; Red line = Dignam's funeral procession; White lines = Wandering Rocks; White numbers = Wandering Rocks subsections
