View Full Version : Why are Some Structures Unlisted?
Nov 23, 2004, 6:00 PM
I was searching the London Diagram and noticed the London Eye (Wheel) which is about 135 meters is not shown. It could be said that it is not a building but in the New York City Diagram, the Wonder Wheel, Parachute Jump and the Astrotower are all shown. What gives? Also, the Control Tower at many airports are not shown.

While searching for city diagrams, I noticed that airport control towers are usually missing while 3 story buildings are included. I am also puzzled why the "London Eye" at 135 meters is not shown on the diagram.

Click on the word "all"

Not every building in every city is listed, you know.

It is listed, but when you look at a default diagram it shouldn't include structures like the London Eye and as they are not Highrises or Towers, as is set in the default settings.

Thanks to "Tony", I was able to find the "London Eye" on the Page; the illustrator is John Hinds. "Gulcrapek", who said "Not every building is shown", needs to try a little harder before giving wrong information to new users.

He was right though, not every building is listed in the database. It's a difficult and probably neverending task to complete the database.

Yes, we can't add every building to the database.
It is very hard to find height figures for structures like airport control towers.
BTW i'm John Hinds (w00t someone was looking at my drawing).
I need to update it sometime to include the structures around the base of the wheel.
