  23. 23. Catalogue the films with Latitude and Longitude 1. Find UK geolocation data sources with an open license a. Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Gazetteer 250k place names, with OS gridref and X,Y coords. Points on the map: cities, towns, villages, hills, water, etc b. Office for National Statistics administrative geography Regions, counties, authorities, London boroughs, Scottish councils All areas in UK, based on OS Boundary Line products, but improved Shapes on the map: counties, authorities, regions, etc

  43. 43. Geographic Locations in CID
  44. 44. Geographic Locations in CID Summary 1. Good data sources for geographic location, with open licences: Ordnance Survey, Office for National Statistics 2. Adlib Designer for configuration of fields / screens, and data import 3. Adlib API for generating map data output eg KML, GeoJSON 4. Mapping infrastructure for visualising eg Google Maps, CartoDB Next steps 1. BFI Player developers will use CID geographic locations data to create BFI Player user experience with map interface 2. More digitising, more cataloguing (and some bulk georeferencing ideas) 3. London streets: I have a georeferenced London streets dataset, to be imported to Adlib Thesaurus to enable street-level cataloguing for London 4. Crowd sourcing of more granular locations data 5. I have a full UK locations hierarchy in Adlib Thesaurus structure: I will share it with the Adlib user community if community is interested in using it
