Londonist’s View of the Ordnance Survey

We are merely passing on a link in this post as Londonist has published its own unique views on the Ordnance Survey and Google issue regarding data licensing.

Suffice to say it made us smile but also worry slightly in a ‘we need to distance ourselves from all this for the sake of our career’ sort of way.

We will publish a list of articles related to this issue next week – a number of people in the industry have been passing comment on various sites and blogs which make interesting reading.

As for our view – well we are probably too close to the subject to comment but there are complex issues that need to be raised with regards data licensing.

See the Londonist article on the Ordnance Survey.
