Enabling Spatial Data Infrastructures through “open”
Realising that ‘open’ enables spatial data infrastructures, touching
all of Ordnance Survey’s operations and those of its
• Web focused product development, open standards
• Product licensing and partner equivalent licensing
• Supporting application development through open technology
• GI community benefits greater than individual
• Content capture and delivery
• Supporting product development through collaboration
All benefiting the dissemination and use of geospatial data
1. Open Standards
2001: GML as supply format for OS MasterMap (GML 2.1.2)
OS On Demand
Active supporters of Open Geospatial Consortium
New products will support open standards
Existing products will see standards evolve
2: Open Source
Open Source support for INSPIRE
• Build a reference implementation for
• Support the Open Source projects to
make the required changes
• Make our knowledge about
implementation available to Data
Publishers and the wider network
3: OS OpenData

OS VectorMapTM District
OS VectorMap District is a mid-scale digital raster and vector mapping product
giving a district-level view. It clearly shows the landscape features relevant to its
level of detail, including generalised buildings, roads, railways, landscape features,
boundaries and rivers. OS VectorMap District is a new product being issued as an
alpha release under OS OpenData. It has been designed for viewing either as a
map on its own or as a context backdrop to your own data, which can be overlaid
using a GIS.

Where to from here?
• Open(er) Product Development
• build a network of trust, we have to earn that trust
• gives sight of developments, brings our customers and
stakeholders on the journey with us
• allows us to be flexible with development
• allows us to benchmark against the community
development roadmap
• Open(er) Data Collection
• Initial focus on expert sourcing
The Dos and Don’ts of Opening up Data
Seminar on Underpinning Innovation with Geography at the Science and
Innovation 2010 Conference, 16 June 2010
• Just release data and expect people to understand or create
with it. Publication is not the same as communication
• Wait for FOI requests, put the data out first informally
• Be late in releasing data
• Rely on future technology to solve today’s problems
• Go straight for the finished article, use rapid prototyping
• Wait for the big budget or formal process but start big things
with small amounts now
• Expect people to interpret the data in the same way you do
• Be technology led, be business led instead

The Dos and Don’ts of Opening up Data
Seminar on Underpinning Innovation with Geography at the Science and
Innovation 2010 Conference, 16 June 2010
• Set out to create commercial or social value with data
• Make sure data quality is and remains high
• Promote innovation using government data sets. Transparency
is only a means to an end
• Enhance communication with the public e.g. Hack Warwickshire
• Incentivise developers
• Create a strong external community
• Be brave – people may do things with the data that you don't
• Use open source software wherever possible
