Ordnance Survey are offering a series of FREE one-day OS OpenData Masterclasses.

The class will combine theory and practical sessions and provide participants with an opportunity to use and harness open datasets from various government departments and public sector organisations including; Higher Education, Health Care, Transport and Environment.
Participants will learn a range of techniques; from data collection and processing, to data analysis and map visualisation.
