Beta geospatial data released

We have just released two initial ('beta') data sets. The data are:
  • A road network data set (available here The data contain a number of measures of road integration which can be used as a proxy for traffic volume.
  • A building (household) data set (available here: The data contain estimates of the house type (detached, semi-detached, terraced or flats), the number of neighbours in the surrounding area (50m and 200m buffers) and the size of any garden attached to the property.
Next Steps
At this stage the data are only available for Leeds and, as they have both been derived from OS MasterMap products, require special licences. Over the next few weeks we will improve the amount of information available in the data (to identify some of the factors that are more relevant to crime analysis) and also generate an Open Street Map data set that can be released publically.
