A share of £101,000 of funding is available for entrants that submit successful ideas that address the problems associated with long-term housing issues we’ve identified, and which use geography, technology and good design. All entrants to the GeoVation Housing Challenge must demonstrate how they will use Ordnance Survey open or paid for data and Land Registry licensable data in their business ventures.
To support the challenge and to help people gain a greater understanding of open data and the tools and techniques to use open datasets, we’re hosting a further series of our free masterclasses, at five locations across England and Wales.
The class in Swansea is kindly supported by Software Alliance Wales:

• Accessibility & Infrastrucutre
The overriding goal of the masterclass is to combine the open data, in order to identify where affordable housing is accessible in areas of lower deprivation for the average household.
IMPORTANT - course requirements:
- Delegates must bring their own (ideally Wi-Fi enabled) laptop
- iPads, tablets and mobile devices will not be suitable for the masterclass
- Secure or ‘locked down’ corporate or public sector laptops may not be suitable, due to security limitations potentially preventing you from loading the necessary software (needed to complete the course) onto the machine, so please check this beforehand.
We are able to offer up to 40 places at each masterclass, which will run from 9.30am until 4.00pm each day.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
