Ooops Gesche, mind to keyboard mess-up re. OS vs ONS.
Comment by Gesche Schmid on November 18, 2009 at 17:07
Ingrid,
it is not ONS but OS who has been asked by government to free up midscale, boundary line and postcode area boundary data as part of the making public data public campaign. The link to the CLG announcement is here http://www.communities.gov.uk/news/corporate/1385429. ONS will be a beneficiary of the move as finally statistics can be linked to geography for free.

http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/media/news/2009/nov2009/m... OS are not at all happy about losing a potential revenue stream, hence the comment about central Gov funding this (for how long?) There is now a 'consultation' period whilst they figure out how and what to do. This is potentially very good news, but as you say - Devil in the detail.

Good news about ONS offering free access to online maps, isn't it? Or am I missing a devil in the detail.
