    • 6. Some Quotes
    • 7. Quote 1
      • “ 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”
      Ed Parsons, ex-CTO Ordnance Survey
    • 8. Quote 2
      • “ 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.”
      Tim Berners-Lee
    • 9. Quote 3
      • “ 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.”
      Bill Gates

      • Norman Dennison, director of Geographers' A-Z Map Company, confirms that Lye Close is a lie, which will now be removed. "The idea is to put something on the map to protect copyright," he says. "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."
