This presentation accompanies an interactive map of Great Britain's rail network, designed and created by Merritt Cartographic.
This map itself, built with OpenData from the Ordnance Survey, highlights the routes operated by each train operating company, the estimated usage of each station in Great Britain (from data published by the Office of Rail Regulation), as well as providing a range of other statistics about the British rail network.
The interactive map which this presentation relates to can be found at the link here:
The symbols used to represent stations on the map (as seen on many of the slides within this presentation) are shown at a size proportional to the total number of entries and exits for 2012-2013 (using a logarithmic scale). The white circles represent, proportionally, the number of rail user interchanges that occurred at each station for 2012-2013.
In this presentation, I attempt to highlight a range of interesting facts and figures, to supplement information found on the map itself, which relate to the stations found on Great Britain’s rail network.
