These are actually .js files. however the only way I have found to get them to work is to install from a site (such as userscripts).

Works fine in FF 12.0 Nice work... :)

Hi,

I thought something had changed! I added the new url to the existing script which worked perfectly. :)
Only noticed this yesterday..

Hi,

I am starting to doubt the quality, accuracy and validity of ordinance survey/open data to a high degree. And given quite a bit of OpenStreetMap is based on what you get from ordinance survey, that is no better!
I mean, when you look at the map and it defines a town/village as being called "This Village" you don't expect to see on street view a sign just outside the village with "Another Village" on it (and that sign being placed on both entrance and exit to said town/village)!

Or maybe people don't actually know where they live?

Hi,

Yes, there does seem to be a bad case of "blur" but never seen it that badly that one village is given the name of another..!
Or I'm having a bad week/day/whatever. :D

Hi,

N.I.? Naa.. Love to help you but I'd need to drive around a bit to familiarise myself. :)

I have noticed in Derby and Notts in particular there are areas/suburbs that have no meaning or context to those areas, Wiki info on the burbs for Nottingham is pretty clear and straight forward (finding them is another matter!) but the script mentions places that leave me lost and confused!! :D

Hi,

Yes, and email to the relevant authority will be dispatched. From others who have had dealings, I don't expect a reply any time soon... :D

Hi,

Had some contact the the Irish equivalent of OS and there is a cost implication for access. They are working on public release but don't anticipate anything before a couple of years!

V2.0: So anyone with a 1.x version should uninstall completely and then add the new script? :)

Thanks,

Hi Des

Unfortunately this government policy but there is ongoing talks of a proposal to make free certain Digital datasets in the next couple of years. Please keep an eye to our website for further updates.

Regards

Hi,

Thanks for that information. So from what I have read, you only sell access to your web map and it is not free to the tax payer.

Regards,
