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

Martin

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,

Thanks for the info. Was this OSNI or the equivalent in the Republic?

Good point, forgot to mention that anyone who's got the OpenDataFullHeight and/or Canaries Map Tracker scripts installed should remove those when upgrading to WMEOD 2.0. Chrome users should also remove the main script and replace it with the webstore version, whereas Firefox users can do an in-place update.

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,

Des. . . ;)

Version 2.0 integrates the OpenData FullHeight and Canaries Map Tracker helper scripts, fixes a lat/lon problem with the Canaries mapping site, and eliminates an illegal data access problem when editing outside of the UK.

It also marks the debut of WMEOD on the Chrome Web Store. Users who've got an earlier CRX version installed should remove that before installing 2.0.

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

AFAIK, Northern Ireland have their equivalent NI-OS, but the data is not freely available. It's also not as complete as for GB.

I suspect it's a similar arrangement in Ireland, though it's only a guess.

That's pretty much up to the relevant mapping authorities - if they provide the same quality of data with the same sort of open-use licence as the OS have done for England, Wales and Scotland, then I'd certainly be interested in integrating it into WMEOD.

Thanks for the quick reply! I do normally have the WMEOD window hanging off the bottom of the screen so I can see right down to the speed data when I've clicked on a road segment. Must get a bigger screen... ;)
