A codelook map question
« on: February 23, 2018, 04:58:31 PM »

Is there a bigger map that I could move around different areas (like we can do with google) and it still have all the dots on for cabinets?

When I put my number in it will show me all the cabinets in the local area. But is there a way to make the map bigger and for me to move around?

I'm asking because there is a cabinet I pass on the way to the dentist and it has all the cables ripped out and the door is open. I was wondering if it is still listed as a cabinet.

On Google maps if you look up 167 Rochdale Rd, Oldham, were Belmont Street meets it, on the corner there is a cabinet. In the April 2017 screen I can see the cables ripped out on the pavement. If I go a little on the Belmont Street the time changes to July 2017 and the cabinet is closed. But since probably the end of last year and today the cabinet is open and empty.

I'm not sure how I would go to find out if the cabinet is still registered on the codelook site?

Looking at the cabinet map on codelook for my town, the position of dots for the location of the cabinets isn't very accurate.

I think the cabinet with open doors you mention is not a BT cabinet. Probably Virgin cable then. I can't see on Google street view if it says CATV on the covers on the pavement in front of the cabinet. There are usually a few in my town with open or missing doors, sometimes there's even a Virgin poster inside with something like "nobody is supposed to blow the bloody doors off".

Taking a close look at the July 2017 image and noting the position of a multi-digit number on the top left-hand edge along with the type of door lock allows me to state, with a high degree of confidence, that the cabinet is a Liberty Global asset.
