Esri UK`s map of pavement distances in Bristol

 

Most pavements around the country are less than 3-metres wide, reveals spatial analysis by GIS mapping company Esri UK. This will make it difficult for pedestrians to remain two metres apart and follow current government guidelines for social distancing.

Using measurements from Ordnance Survey, Esri UK has created a map of all pavement widths. It discovered that only 30% of Great Britain’s pavements are at least three metres wide, 36% are between two and three metres, and 34% are less than two metres wide.
