Details

The data concerns 408 square grids each of 0.25 square kms about south London (south of the River Thames). They were picked in a rectangular region of 102 square kilometres where the density of hits were roughly uniformly distributed. The data is somewhat comparable to V1 albeit is a smaller data set.
