*** Presented at State of the Map 2013 ***
Local and national governments regularly encounter issues with licences for geographical data. In the UK, Ordnance Survey licensing has thrown up numerous issues for local authorities with limited budgets wishing to easily display geographical data to their customers. Many of these issues can be easily overcome through the use of OpenStreetMap, OpenLayers and a generous helping of coffee.
This talk is intended to explain how governments can harness the power of OpenStreetMap and OpenLayers to make their data come alive quickly, and give an insight into a recent project in Warwickshire that did just that.
