Problems with PROW data on the boundary between Central Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire
This web page is from www.rowmaps.com, a project to show public rights of way (PROWs) on maps. So far, 106 authorities have released under licence the data about their PROWs. As well as showing PROWs on maps, www.rowmaps.com also provides links to the original data, derived KML files and derived GeoJSON files.
This web page identifies one or more problems with the PROWs that straddle the boundary between the areas looked after by the Council of Central Bedfordshire (BK) and the Council of Buckinghamshire (BM). This has been done by analysing the data provided by these two councils.
This web page is mainly about those PROWs which have a gap when the PROW crosses the boundary. I've arbitarily decided that a gap that is 10 metres or more long is significant. There may be other gaps that are not listed here.
Significant gaps in the PROW data
Lines have been superimposed on the map and these lines have been produced using the data from two councils. The council of Central Bedfordshire releases under licence data containing details of the rights of way that are in Central Bedfordshire. The date of this data is 11th February 2014. The council of Buckinghamshire releases under licence data containing details of the rights of way that are in Buckinghamshire. The date of this data is 9th December 2013.
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.
