Land Registry data for May 2019

I’ve uploaded the latest house price data for England and Wales to my website. The data is so boring at the moment I can’t find anything of interest to say about it. The annual rate of inflation has been stuck at 1.7% for the last 3 months.

I will make the prediction that something interesting will happen if/when we leave the EU but since I don’t want to spend my days clearing out abusive messages from the comments section, I won’t say which way I think prices will go…

Isoline routing

Here Maps has an interesting feature that I’ve not seen in other mapping solutions. Called isoline routing, it answers the question “Starting from point A, how far can I travel in X amount of time?”. I’m not sure how useful it is, but it’s certainly interesting to play with, so I’ve added a page implementing it on my site.

Cycling is not supported by the API so I’m using the walking option adjusted for the faster travelling time, although the results may not be completely accurate.

Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see added to it.
