  3. 3. Government: good and bad Government is good at collecting data, especially where the market would not (e.g map data of remote areas — rarely visited but matter in emergencies or to small groups) Government is inefficient at using its data.

Licences can be expensive; confusing (restrict use in a world where easy flow of data matters) and cause delay (they make what should be fast, slow). Without licensing and charging, there would be faster movement. We propose: no licences; no charges. Make up the difference from the tax revenues generated by new businesses and the expansion of existing ones.

  22. 22. Money’s being left on the table

  26. 26. Paid-for creates economic friction A local authority may end up paying multiple times for data it has generated — meaning taxpayers pay 1: planning application site map from OS (£25) 2: local council pays for map base (payment to OS) 3: personal taxes (half of OS revenue is from tax) 4: OS and Post Office creates Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG) from local authority data provided free 5: person checks application using postcode search: local authority charged per click (from local taxes)
