Project Description

OS Open Roads

OS Open Roads is a mid-scale topologically connected road network dataset covering the UK. The data includes road centrelines classified by the national and local highway authorities, nodes representing connections and motorway junctions.

OS Open Roads can be combined with other Ordnance Survey datasets, such as OS Open Map Local or OS Vector Map District to provide map reference data. It can also be used for spatial analysis and simple road network analysis, such as generating drive-times and service areas.
