    OS Open Data

    I've just been updating my presentation on OS Open Data and hadn't noticed a couple more products have been removed:- OS Locator and OS 50K Gazetteer.

    OK, those have been replaced by OS Open Names now - over 870,000 named and numbered roads, nearly 44,000 settlements and over 1.6 million postcodes - all in one big, busy dataset.

    I mourned the passing of OS Meridien2 when that was removed from the Open Data portfolio. A national vector dataset which was fast and efficient for general use (designed to replace Strategi at the time it was released). OS kept Strategi but notice that, whilst it is still available to download, that data has been frozen at January 2016.
