    I'm sure many of you are aware of this recent announcement by the Geospatial Commission...

    'Today, the Geospatial Commission and its partner bodies have launched a new single Data Exploration Licence to harmonise and simplify access and use of geospatial data. This is part of its £5 million investment made to the partner bodies last year for data foundation projects.'

    Fundamentally the hope is that this should make the use of geospatial data more prolific -  do you see this being a conduit to more use cases based on working with this data, enriching it and analysing it? If so, would be interesting to hear how you think it could impact your future projects?
