Mmmm, 2611 is Weston Creek (western edge of Canberra).
The map points to a spot 18km WSW, in Namadgi National Park, close to
Bendora Dam (one of the bits still burnt from the Jan 2003 fires).
As far as I can see, the display doesn't offer postcode boundaries.
The Gregory's seems to suggest that 2611 is confined to Weston Creek
(although a mate out along Cotter Rd towards Namadgi has 2611 in his
entry in the phone-book).
This isn't just a grizzle for no reason.
The questions are:
- what's the purpose of the app?
- does the design reflect that purpose?
- is this exercise technology-driven rather than user/use-driven?
