Dataset containing the public rights of way of Staffordshire

The council of Staffordshire provide a web page from where you can download an ESRI shape file that contains details of their public rights of way. The data in this file is © Staffordshire County Council copyright and database right 2014. The Council also provides information about public rights of way on its online map. It may be that their map uses more up-to-date information.

An authority's Definitive Map is the authoritative source of their rights of way. The details of the public rights of way network contained in an authority's data are for information only, and are an interpretation of the Definitive Map, not the Definitive Map itself, and should not be relied on for determining the position or alignment of any public right of way. For legal purposes, an authority's data does not replace their Definitive Map. And changes may have been made to the Definitive Map that are not included in their data. The authority's data contains Ordnance Survey data © Crown copyright and database right 2013. Attempting to view this data with more detail than 1:10000 may produce an inaccurate rendering of the route of a public right of way.

Although this web page does not indicate the licence under which this data is released, I have been informed that the ESRI shape file is released with this licence. So it's possible for other people to use their data. I also understand that the Council are intending to update the licence later in 2016.

This web site also provides data about the rights of way of Staffordshire in KML format and in GeoJSON format.
