    • What is it?
    • Why have I not heard of it before?
    • How can you possibly provide what you claim to - at that price?
    • This is a ‘by-product’ of our historic mainstream commercial work
    • It holds an unique place in the field of available / accessible data
    • The potential uses are so wide and varied it deserved to be a ‘mass- market’ product, so there was no point in creating economic ‘blocks’ to access
    • So the initial data and software is Free (a VERY reasonable price)
