Ordnance Survey Not So Bad After All?

| Comments

You might have seen this post last week about how the Ordnance Survey once again saved the universe from un-approved uses of “their” data, by blocking an incredibly useful application that overlays Ordnance Survey mapping over Google Earth. You might have seen this post about it too. You might even have written to the Ordnance Survey to complain about it.

However, unless, like me, you had these posts tagged in your feed reader ready to write something about them, you might not have realised that the Ordnance Survey have (sort of) relented.  I say “sort of”, because apparently there’s still an issue between the terms of Google Earth’s license and that of the Ordnance Survey, but at least Gavin gets his API key back again.

Power to the people!
