  • People already use it; James – OSM, Satellite, Tablet to plan the route… nothing whilst we were out… he led us into a bog… which was on our map.But, the key thing is we can tailor.
  • Everything designed around the users. Garmin already pointed out the failings of paper as a medium…. Our choice of medium was based upon the short comings of the alternatives… paper and electronic. But the French describe these issues best here!
  • Adsorbent if you need that…Intangibility of the stuff on the screen…
  • Throw out maps-How many of you are involved in Open Data – Show of hands-Do you ever feel that no-one gets why it’s being done?-Do you ever wish the outcomes could be more tangible?-I hope this presentation and perhaps work we can do together can do this for you.
  • Our answer;-Provide a product people/ any people can use-Encourage them toward Where we want help – Back office, creation of an automated site centring that automates the right print file.
