Route Maps

The route maps are designed to guide you through the legal and ethical requirements which surround the secondary use of data for research purposes.

The key stages in each process are identified as 'stations' on the route maps. When you click on a station you will find information to help guide you through that stage of the process. You can access the information behind the stations either by clicking on the stations themselves or by using the list on the left hand side of the page. You can download the route maps in PDF format from the relevant route map page.
