OSM Coverage

This map includes the City of Brighton and Hove and is defined in OSM as relation 114085

The natural boundaries of this conurbation are the sea to the South, the South Downs to the East (to Falmer Rd, and including Woodingdean), the South Downs to the North (the A27 effectively), and River Adur on the West. The original northern boundary was south of Patcham but was extended after World War I to prevent pollution to the water table from shack dwellings.

An area of the city centre has all the building outlines drawn in. Clearly this can be expanded. There's also rich POI data which has been input during the various waves of mapping parties. This will require some maintenance. See something out-of-date? Edit the map!
