Mapumental is a web service (currently in private beta) that helps London commuters take some of the guess-work out of deciding where to live, based on how long of a commute they’d like to deal with. Combining data from the UK’s various public transportation services, Mapumental can highlight the boundaries of potential towns you may want to live in based on the exact amount of time you want to spend traveling to work everyday: 30 minutes, 1 hour and so on.
Other details can be brought into the mix as well. The program also can take into account how much you want to spend on housing, and even has a “scenic” setting to determine if the area is idyllic enough.
