    Interesting, useful. Two questions:
    1 Can you/how can you specify centre and/or radius numerically?
    2 What’s the ‘granularity’? That is, given the pop is an estimate, how small can the circle be without the estimate becoming too unreliable?
    Thanks, Dave Guppy

    Hi Dave,
    In answer to your questions:
    1) Not possible right now, but this is something we will add in soon
    2) We don’t have a hard figure for this but once the radius gets less than about 5 miles, the results do get a bit hit and miss.
