Mapumental - useful, data-rich, it rocks!

This is very very cool: Mapumental by MySociety builds data from GoogleMaps, public transport timetables, average house prices and a 'scenicness' game that has built up a pool of data on the most scenic places in Britain, to make (what looks like) a really useable guide on where to live in the UK. It's in private Beta, which I haven't managed to acquire yet, so I've only seen the video. But having seen the video I can't wait. It really is an incredibly useful, straightforward tool that I can see helping a lot of people.
