Speed Datasets

Delivering accurate and immediate drive time analysis

Speed Datasets now available


A new speed dataset produced along with Trafficmaster utlising their market leading raw GPS speed data. This data can be used by a multitude of solutions and has been optimised to work with Basemap’s marketing leading TRACC software.

Use TM-Speeds to:

  • Enhance outputs from TRACC software
  • Determine congestion outside new site locations
  • Optimise route and travel time analysis over 6 daily time periods
  • Estimate delivery times and plan the best sequence to make visits, deliveries and collections
  • Plan emergency response routes
  • Produce year on year comparisons of drive times
  • Accurate and immediate drive time analysis

Accurate data

  • Over 135,000 vehicles polled every 1 to 10 seconds
  • Over 12 billion data counts for Great Britain loaded and queried per annum
  • Used by Department of Transport and many Local Authorities
  • Provided with bi-directional speeds

Easy to use

  • 100% coverage for Great Britain
  • Speed data segmented into 6 time periods  (Peak AM, Peak PM, Off Peak, Evening, Night Time and Weekend)

Proven and accurate road network

  • Uniquely mapped to Ordnance Survey’s Integrated Transport Network layer (ITN)
  • Delivers detailed Road Routing Information (RRI) such as one way systems, level crossings and access restrictions


Basemap have been collating data to add valuable information to Ordnance Survey’s premium products. The BM-SpeedLimits Dataset adds the missing jigsaw piece of detailed speed limit information to Ordnance Surveys ITN and Highways network.

The initial speed data was created using information from local authorities and has been updated from several detailed sources including police forces to ensure a high level of accuracy and is continually updated and perfected through a system of user feedback from sources such as telematics data.

BM-SpeedLimits works alongside our other TM-Speeds dataset to enable you to:

  • calculate congestion or where traffic is flowing freely
  • identify where people are speeding
  • view where restrictions are in place eg. outside schools
