We briefly mentioned the BBC's Dimensions site when it launched last year. Using a clever bit of Google mappery, the site allows you to take a famous object, building, festival or area and superimpose it over any postcode. It's a supremely addictive plaything, showing how your house compares in girth to the Great Pyramid, for example, or how the Mall matches up to the space shuttle runway. We've picked six London-themed examples above, but there are many more objects to manhandle over on the Dimensions site.
