We've launched our #GetOutside campaign to inspire people from all walks of life and all ages and abilities just to spend a little more time outside their four walls, wherever they live. Find out more and make your #GetOutside pledge at os.uk/getoutside. All pledges are entered into a prize draw to get help towards achieving their pledges too.
We pride ourselves on the level of detail that our digital map products have, but this can make them pretty daunting to work with, especially if you have never worked with the specialist map software, Geographic Information Software (GIS) needed to manipulate them before. To help new users of our data, especially OS OpenData, we have produced a series of videos to help: 1. view a simple map of where they live 2. view a map for a wider area 3. create their own styled map 4. show their data with postcodes and boundaries on a map They can all be found on our YouTube channel, along with other introductory videos on understanding the difference between Raster and Vector data and getting to grips with the National Grid. We plan to extend the series of Using OS OpenData tutorials in due course, so if there are any issues you have encountered that you would like some help with, please drop us a line and we will add them to the suite.
