Frequently Asked Questions

What do the dotted green/blue/red lines mean?

The base map layer we use is from OpenSteetMap, a "collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world". They have had a small subset of the public rights of way added by their users and these show up as dashed lines.

A full OpenSteetMap key is available here:

Why is the same right of way sometimes shown as a dotted and solid line, very close together?

The base map layer we use is from OpenStreetMap, this is then overlaid with the official Ordnance Survey right of way data shown as solid red/blue/magenta/green lines.

Due to discrepancies / inaccuracies of the data, both sets of lines may not occur in identical locations and can both be displayed, often very close to each other.
