Event Details

People across Great Britain are being given the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of open data and the tools and techniques to use open datasets, through a series of free Masterclasses, hosted by Ordnance Survey and supported by Horizon Digital Economy Research.

This series of Masterclasses will follow the format of previous workshops in combining theory and practical sessions.

We have updated the Masterclass workshop material, still following the same journey of downloading the data, importing it into open source software and mashing with other open datasets to provide analysis. This session is ideal for those new to working with location data or anyone wishing to brush up on their skills.

We shall also be working with OS OpenSpace, Ordnance Survey’s free web mapping service that allows users to display up-to-date Ordnance Survey mapping in a web page or online environment. The workshop for this session will explain how to create file formats that can be easily imported into web mapping to show a list of locations.

For more advanced users, we will introduce our cartographic design principles and run through how to style map data features using open source software, and add the finishing touches to their map such as legends and scales bars.

Peter ter Haar, Director of Products and Innovation at Ordnance Survey, said: “The masterclasses are a great opportunity for people to experiment and start to develop with Ordnance Survey’s open data products and services. The sessions will provide the attendees with the tools and techniques needed to use, analyse and style a range of open datasets relevant to them.

“Today we are seeing thousands of ventures, products and applications underpinned by location data, and we want to make ensure that when developers are using digital mapping they think of Ordnance Survey. Through OS OpenData and OS OpenSpace anyone can access, for free, detailed and trusted digital mapping to support their products, services or applications.”

Ordnance Survey is able to offer up to 40 places at each master class, running from 9.30 am until 5.00pm each day.
