Openly Licenced Reusable Data

Roads

Motorway Boundary Files

Following a tweet by dominijk, I used Ordnance Survey’s Open Roads data set to create a polygon of the M25 as this is commonly used as a feature boundary in the media as an unofficial region.

I then applied the same technique to the Manchester orbital motorway, the M60 as this is similarly used.
