THE SPEEDMAP STORY
5 Years & Counting...
Speedmap is a project five years in the making with the aim of producing a network-independent national speed limit map for the UK. It’s creators, Richard Owen and Dan Campsall, recognised the need for an accurate map to support innovation in road safety – without being tied to a costly proprietary mapping solution.
The first version was supplied to a telematics startup in 2012 and is now used by several companies in the same sector who want to review driver speed profiles. Our data is sourced from a multitude of datasets and boasts 100% coverage of the UK road network. Recent developments have enabled significant investment into improving accuracy levels and we are embarking on a new phase of work in Q3 2017 to push towards 100% accuracy.
