Sustrans Map - Measure Your Route

Sustrans Map - Measure Your Route

"Sustrans is the UK's leading sustainable transport charity. Our vision is a world in which people choose to travel in ways that benefit their health and the environment. Every day we are working on practical, innovative ways of dealing with the transport challenges that affect us all."

Sustrans Map

The Sustrans Map uses Openlayers and data from Ordnance Survey - a Dotted Eyes creation.

Sustrans aims are:

  • reduce the environmental and resource impacts of transport
  • enable people to choose active travel more often
  • provide car-free access to essential local services
  • create streets and public spaces into places for people to enjoy.
The Unique 'Value Added Tool' for this map is the Interactive Route Creation which dynamically shows the user the distance and time it takes whilst digitising your own route:

Sustrans Map Measure Route
Custom route creation - displays average time and distance as you build your route.

The refresh display speed of the background maps are not the fastest but the usefulness of the tool overrides this bottleneck.
