I noticed some maps on the parking page that are using unlicensed Google Maps. We should switch to OpenStreetMap not just for the licensing but because they're better (the carpark mentioned actually shows on the map). As part of this task though I think we could write up on the wiki how to get a nice map, whether that's using OpenStreetMap itself to generate or getting something from MapBox.

This not to say we /can't/ have Google Maps or links to it, but if we want to embed on the wiki an OpenStreetMap map would be better.

Had a go on the parking page with the Gildart Road image I originally added. Can't see any sensible way of adding in something equivalent to the embedded iframe within GitHub flavoured markdown variants which is a bit of a pain. Would be nice just to embedded the browseable map as is with its own copyright message.

https://blog.datawrapper.de/locator-maps/ seems to have a nice tool for building "locator maps". Not sure if they're any easier to embed, haven't looked into them that far.
