Brighton is a city in East Sussex at latitude 50° 49′ 48″ North, longitude 0° 7′ 48″ West.
This map includes the City of Brighton and Hove and Shoreham-by-Sea.
The natural boundaries of this conurbation are the sea to the South, the Downs to the East (to Falmer Rd, and including Woodingdean), Downs to the North (the A27 effectively), and River Adur on the West.
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 See something out-of-date?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!
