    4. 6. Some Quotes
    5. 7. Quote 1 <ul><li>“ It’s absolutely possible for a bunch of smart guys with the technology we have today to capture street networks, and potentially the major roads of the UK and minor roads” </li></ul>Ed Parsons, ex-CTO Ordnance Survey
    6. 8. Quote 2 <ul><li>“ If you don’t make [lower-resolution mapping data] publicly available, there will be people with their cars and GPS devices, driving around with their laptops .. They will be cataloguing every lane, and enjoying it, driving 4×4s behind your farm at the dead of night. There will, if necessary, be a grass-roots remapping.” </li></ul>Tim Berners-Lee
    7. 9. Quote 3 <ul><li>“ You could have a community capability where you took the GPS data of people driving around and started to see, oh, there’s a new road that we don’t have, a new route .. And so that data eventually should just come from the community with the right software infrastructure.” </li></ul>Bill Gates

    33. 71. A-Z <ul><li>Norman Dennison, director of Geographers' A-Z Map Company, confirms that Lye Close is a lie, which will now be removed. &quot;The idea is to put something on the map to protect copyright,&quot; he says. &quot;We try to put it in an area or a part of a road which would not be misleading to the ordinary person in the street. They have been put in out-of-the-way places.&quot; </li></ul>
