Uk Broadband Speeds / UK Land Cover Map

I received two bits of news about UK mapping which caught my interest today. The first was the UK Broadband Speeds┬áMap made by Ofcom (regulator of communications industry in the UK). The map has a nice transparency for the layer of administrative areas coloured by rank of broadband speed. It also makes use of Google Fusion tables – something I’ve been meaning to look at more myself. There is the promise of a more detailed map later this year. Watch this space!

Next up is news from the Guardian Environment blog of the UK Land Cover map by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH). This isn’t actually that new a dataset. The name of the dataset is LCM2007. And invery last minute news you can register for a web seminar (webinar) about the creation of LCM2007 and potential uses for it. The webinar starts at 11am (British Summer Time (GMT+1) on Thursday 7th July. Click here to register!
