I have had some request for use of OS Open Data.
However, not being from the country, I have no idea which of these data layers people would want.
Even after reading all they say about them, I'm not even sure I could pick out one from another.
I'll note that none of these data layers specifically mention that they include trails, or "walking paths" as they are called there. That's something that customers would generally consider important.
One might assume that because it is "Open Data", it is free. That might be true if I simply wanted to display it on a web page.
However, processing the data and/or tiling it for use is not cheap. Therefore, I'd want to concentrate on what you really want.
From second hand opinion, it appears that most of you consider the OPenData to be vastly inferior to what you see now on UK Os Explorer. Is that still the case?
If you would like to see Open Data, please comment below on what layers you would want.
Mention if it would be a deal breaker if it involved additional cost.
