Reported Road Casualties of Great Britain 2018

Postby mjr » 27 Sep 2019, 1:36am

I'm sure it'll appear in more detail on Cyclestreets Bikedata before long, but I've thrown the Reported Road Casualties of Great Britain 2018 (released yesterday) cycle-involved fatal and serious incidents onto an interactive map at https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/en/map/20 ... cgb_369394

I strongly suggest using the data layers icon (the bottom one on the left to me, round layers stacked) to hide the data until you've zoomed in to the area that interests you, else it may be rather slow.

If you want more detail, looking the Accident_Index up in the Vehicles and Casualties tables from https://data.gov.uk/dataset/cb7ae6f0-4b ... afety-data will give you a little more detail, but you'll also need the "Lookup up tables for variables" from the section below.

Yes, only the Norfolk layer has slight incidents. I will make new maps with other police areas if asked, but the KSI map has already become difficult to work with.

Shared, with appropriate credit. May I ask the difference between the layers of Severe Cycle Casualties 2018 (s) and (n)?
Hand wash only. Do not iron.

They appear to be south and north, respectively, of an imaginary E-W line passing roughly through Milton Keynes.

Thanks. I'd zoomed in further before exploring the layers.

Yes, I couldn't put all the points on one layer else it refused to save. That's why slight casualties are not loaded. I've been given some hints to try when I am back home.
