Changes to this web site are tweeted to @rowmaps and are also listed on the tweets web page.

This web site can display a map showing rights of way for any of these authorities. The underlying map can be from the Ordnance Survey, OpenStreetMap, Google or Bing. You can ask for a map that is close to a specific place. You can also ask for transport stops (such as bus stops) to be added to the map. There are also details about how you could include a map on your own web page, and how you can build a route for a walk, run, etc., by selecting several rights of way and then outputting it in KML or GPX. This web site also provides links to the original data, derived KML files and derived GeoJSON files.

If you wish to see a map showing the rights of way near to a particular place, type a place name, postcode or grid reference into one of the boxes below. Then click the search button.

the name of a place
You can type the name of the place (e.g. New Alresford) into the box below. You don't have to type all of the name and the searching doesn't worry about capital letters. For example, instead of typing New Alresford you could type alre and it would find any place that has alre as part of its name.

a postcode or a grid reference
Or type into this box a postcode (e.g. SO24 9BW) or a grid reference (e.g. SU585326, SU58533262 or SU5853032615). The searching doesn't worry about capital letters and spaces.

Here's a link to a bigger map.

The above map is from Google maps. For each authority, I'm using the quickhull algorithm to wrap a convex hull around the points of their public rights of way. I'm using some code produced by Jakob Westhoff.
