OK, I have had a first stab at it.


It is only 25 cities so far, but if it turns out to be useful it can easily
be extended to more cities.

The big problem though is automatically figuring out if routes are broken or
not and then colour them red or green accordingly. At the moment it doesn't
do this at all.

Anyone have some good ideas for this?

The routing information is obtained from "Open Source Routing Machine",
which is amazingly fast at calculating all of these long distance routes.
OSRM updates its data daily, so I think the routing data is based on OSM
data from yesterday. I.e. post redaction. If there is interest I could
regenerate this routing grid daily too.
