Hi,

Does anyone know if it's possible to get some decent free data regarding the UK? Particularly DEM's and features such as lakes, parks etc in shp format. It seems to be rather difficult to find anything good, or good and free.

Thanks for any help,

Dave.

Well, it depends on the scale level you're after. For DEM's there's SRTM. Lakes and parks could be taken out of OpenStreetmap.
