Why is Virtual London not publicly available in Google Earth?

By January 4, 2007 No Comments

Its a good question and the Guardian Newspaper tackles the issue today in its technology supplement. In an article entitled ‘Copyright sinks Virtual Planning’ Michael Cross explores the development of the Virtual London model and the issues involved in making it publicly available online.

You can read the article via Guardian Unlimited and if your interested in the issues involved see the blog of the Free Data Campaign.

Interesting times are ahead for the Ordnance Survey, we couldn’t of made the model without them and for the time being we cant use it publicly with them..
