Borough Ward Maps
How to make a ward map for your borough.
We’ve also made two other uploads of this data for the UK as a whole and to show all data in Hammersmith.
Schools Listing and Map
List of London Schools with cycling rates from 2011, listed by borough and ward (as an excel file)
Map of England and Wales Schools with maps of walking and cycling rates as at 2011
(thanks to Jack Thurston for inspiration on this)
The transport data on these maps is based on hands up surveys. We’ve only linked data where existing open school identifier matches that from the 2011 data. There may be some schools therefore with a low cycling rate where at least the building and possibly a previous incarnation of the school had a good cycling rate. We’re looking at ways of adding their data. Thanks to Robert Heyward for pointing out some examples of this.
Space for Cycling Data
DfT Traffic Count Data with PCUs and borough/ward (for all of UK)
This is based on DFT Traffic Count Data and we have added PCUs to support use with LCC Protected Space guidelines
Making photos for the Ward Asks, and other imagery sources
After a query from Tim Lennon on the email list, we made a quick summary of where we were on ward ask photos in early March, complete with links and some tips.
