Me and my colleagues , and have made an interactive map of coronavirus restrictions. Find out what restrictions apply where you are by clicking the link.

Looks nice, though some sort of postcode lookup (cough :-) ) I find easier to use. Wales restrictions are also on entering area, not just leaving, I believe; hope that’s helpful.

Thanks Matthew! Some of the restrictions have been simplified for the map. My accompanying briefing paper (linked on the map) has more details.

Feature suggestion: request location from the user's browser and if within the UK zooming to that area. It feels like it would probably hit a lot of users' needs. ("what are the restrictions where I am" ) apologies for not validating this with users.

Much of UK city level IP geolocation is wrong...

Awesome job and kudos to all involved! A really useful resource to track what’s going on. Being a bit geeky are you able to share broadly what tech was involved?

Thanks Ali. It’s Leaflet and vanilla JavaScript transpiled and polyfilled to work in older browsers. The tiles for the base layer are served from Mapbox. In this case the boundaries are just simple geojson (i.e. not a tile layer). Carl created the boundary layer in QGIS.

This is brilliant! I’ve been advocating something as simple and clear like this for ages! Next step .... please invite yourself onto every weather forecast platform ... (and next Gov briefing) ... to help communicate this to the U.K. public ... to provide clarity to them👍
