OS OpenData Street View

If you’re not a map geek you may want to move along now. For those that are left, above is a map of Edge Hill taken from Ordnance Survey’s Street View product. On 1st April, OS released OpenData under a liberal attribution licence so anyone can use it. The detail on some of the maps is fantastic and while it’s not bang up to date – above you can see the Faculty of Health but not the new Business and Law School – it’s better than anything else out there.

It’s hard to overestimate the importance of what the Ordnance Survey have released, but that’s probably a post for another time and another place.
