Behold, the latest attempt by the Ordnance Survey to head-off moves aimed at freeing our data.

I despair of them. Two weeks ago they were prating about 'the map of the future', see this link:

http://www.ordnances.../futuremap.html

On this page its says 'A map of Bournemouth with building models and height information captured from high accuracy lasers. Download/view a high resolution version of the above image (2mb)'. If you follow the link you get the attached image.

I was going to add some sarcastic stuff about not remembering Bournemouth looking like a rice paddy in the Mekong Delta, but I don't have the heart for it.

Sorry to keep banging on this, but see:

The latest wizard wheeze for ensuring that the data they hold continues to be withheld from the people who paid for it! Deeply, deeply shaming.
