News: Key Parts Of OS MasterMap Data To Be Made Freely Available

pocketgpsworld.com
It has been announced that key parts of Ordnance Survey’s (OS) highly detailed OS MasterMap are being made freely available under the Open Government Licence (OSL).

Data to be made available free of charge includes OS MasterMap Greenspace Layer, OS MasterMap Highways Network, OS MasterMap Water Network Layer and OS Detailed Path Network.

It's estimated that this will boost the UK economy by at least £130m each year, as innovative companies and startups gain access and start to use the data.

Previously a one-year contract covering Great Britain cost £4,581,000. Making OS MasterMap available in this way is intended to remove the barriers identified which affected start-ups and small businesses in particular.

News: TomTom To Integrate What3Words System

pocketgpsworld.com
TomTom announced yesterday that it is partnering with UK startup What3words and adopting their geocoding system that uses just three words to help travelers find their way to very precise points on earth.

What3words divides the entire planet into 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares, assigning each square a random three-word address. For example, if you want to find your way to a specific place in the Gobi desert, What3words may tell you that its address is “departed.rumbled.awaiting.” Move a few meters to the left, and the three-word address will change.

It's a superbly simple system and allows you to easily pass on a location where traditional postcodes aren't an option and Lat/Lon too complex and confusing.

TomTom will be offering what3words integration to TomTom consumer and automotive customers in the second half of this year.
