How And Why Governments Should Use (and are using) OpenStreetMap More

A session at State of the Map 2013

Friday 6th September, 2013

12:00pm to 12:20pm (GMT)

Pete Lancaster, Warwickshire County Council
Local and national governments regularly encounter issues with licences for geographical data. In the UK, Ordnance Survey licensing has thrown up numerous issues for local authorities with limited budgets wishing to easily display geographical data to their customers. Many of these issues can be easily overcome through the use of OpenStreetMap, OpenLayers and a generous helping of coffee. This talk is intended to explain how governments can harness the power of OpenStreetMap and OpenLayers to make their data come alive quickly, and give an insight into a recent project in Warwickshire that did just that.
