Whilst that's probably right, I notice that the boundaries of these urban
areas are drawn very loosely and don't just exclude heavily urbanised areas,
e.g. you have excluded quite a large proportion of what is essentially rural
Cheshire due to its proximity to Manchester - but in reality much of it is
very rural including some long-distance footpaths etc. All of the land
between Liverpool and Manchester is missing, and only shows countour lines
at closer zoom levels, not just the cities themselves.
There's also a large void from Bridgnorth in Shropshire all the way to the
North Sea near Lowestoft which cuts off a lot of rural areas.
There is a large void in the North of England - which includes part of the
Northumberland National Park.
Are these voids intentional, or are they areas that haven't been rendered
for whatever reason?
