The Hong Kong Temple Map project came to an end in 2016 and the website associated with it was subsequently taken down. It was an ambitious project that aimed to map out the abundant temples of Hong Kong and other cultural landmarks. Originally intended for print, the project succeeded in gathering an unrivalled set of data regarding GPS coordinates and locations of hundreds of sites across Hong Kong’s territories. Tom was the map editor and spent several months on the ground in Hong Kong collecting data and writing posts for the Temple Map website.
Over the coming months, the articles that were on the website will be republished on The Temple Trail. A digital version of the map is also in the works for 2017.
