Free Our Data

The Guardian has been campaigning for free online access to UK data.

Latest news item concerns Ireland which is "making a group of datasets for boreholes around the country available online so that professional users - in particular those engaging in major construction or infrastructure planning - will be able to visualise subterranean structures."

"Ordnance Survey, is due within the next month to launch its OpenSpace project which will - after 13 months' delay - allow web developers to create mashups of data directly from OS maps online."
