Just a quick post to remind everyone that the Ordnance Survey consultation on making postcode and mapping data available for free reuse is going on right now.
Number 10 don’t seem to have noticed, but we have — and it’s so important that every right-thinking person in the land responds. We’ve got to tell the Ordnance Survey what we think — if we don’t, only incumbent commercial interests will respond. And if that happens, you can bet that whatever we end up with will be very similar to the status quo.
This opportunity won’t come around again for a long while. Please take a moment, and use our online form to send your thoughts to the Ordnance Survey.
Don’t forget to ask your friends to do the same!
