The BBC lists all their public national and local radio transmittors (with Ordnance Survey grid references). Holme Moss 95.1 M 5.6kW SE095041 Saddleworth 104.6 V 100W SD987050 You could create a simple script that would create buffers around these points based on the transmitter ERP (equivalent radiated power). If you wanted to ...

I think you'll need to georeference the base image and then capture your vector layers manually drawing over it. This seems like a similar proccess: http://geo.nls.uk/urbhist/guides_vectorlayerqgis.html but not exactly what you are looking for. If you're unfamiliar with georeferencing this looks like a good guide as well: ...

The Ordnance Survey have Landform Profile and Landform Panorama that were based on their contour data, but it is not fantastic quality, and it is based on very old data. But it is now free to download, so if you just need a dataset to play with, it's a good choice. I've used GetMapping's NEXTMap Britain 2 lidar data, and it is of generally very good ...

I went through this process just last week (email, then CD in the post). Couldn't believe it either - although they posted (for free, anywhere worldwide I think) within hours of my email and I got them a couple of days later. Not sure how this can save costs over a download link.. I'd put them online myself but guess there must be licensing issues. Seems ...

UK postcodes don't cover polygons. They cover a set of individual delivery points which are not necessarily contiguous. It is certainly possible, given the co-ordinates for these delivery points, to describe a polygon such that all the co-ordinates are within that polygon. However, such a polygon would not be a unique solution - there would be many polygons ...

If you're putting your delimited text file into a database and then into any GIS, you need an intermediate step. Create a new field (e.g. "Location") of type "geography" (or possibly "geometry"? my database experience is not in PostGIS!), then update it from your X & Y columns. Then when you import it into QGIS, that "Location" field should be ...

I found this on the Ordnance Survey Blog Map data video from 2004 to 2011. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lvmcYvcJY2I source: http://blog.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/2011/04/3974/ (try contacting the author of the blog.)

Ordnance Survey, Open Data Just found out about this service, so thought I'd add an answer as an alternative. Building footprints are included at the most detailed levels - although all buildings are rendered as homogenised blobs. After reading the licensing information it appears that the data can be adapted - so tracing might be an option. "These ...

OS has started an open source effort called OS OpenData which provides a number of 'open' datasets. The lack of publicly available UK data was part of the impetus for OpenStreetMap (OSM). Cloudmade has some easy-to-use extracted data, and other download options via Planet.osm.

In the future you should be able to use the LLPG (local Land and Property Gazetteer), which would return a British National Grid coordinate. This can be easily converted to Lat/Long and I would argue it is probably more up to date than the OS AddressPoint data, given that it is updated by the councils who create the address and updated daily in most cases. ...

The most accurate way to do this is to use the Ordnance Survey AddressPoint dataset. Their price list seems to suggest that for use on just one terminal costs around £16,000. However, if you are willing to sacrifice some accuracy you can do this for free at http://www.nearby.org.uk/coord.cgi using the postcode part of the address. They also have an API ...

It might be quite difficult to create a global web application that uses Ordnance Survey data for GB and then other data for the rest of the world because of the projections especially if using the Ordnance Survey Raster data. Ordnance Survey data is British National Grid which is EPSG:27700 and rest of the global datasets are in WGS84 or Google Spherical ...

I have set up something similar which uses OpenLayers and OS OpenData as the basemap. There is no special code for OS data, just a regular WMS layer: basemap = new OpenLayers.Layer.WMS("Basemapping", "http://your-URL-to-your-WMS-server/wms.exe?", {layers: 'OpenData'} ); The difficult part is getting the OS OpenData in the form of a WMS. See Rob ...

The way I see it you have two main options. 1) Sign up for OS OnDemand - OS OnDemand is Ordnance Surveys WMS service. once you have access you can call it via a standard OpenLayers WMS call. This is not a free service. The licence for an external facing application is £20,000 a year. They do provide a free trial though. 2) Set up your own WMS loaded with ...

You can create your own from: Codepoint Open https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/opendatadownload/products.html Supply format: CSV Version: 11/2013 Code-Point Open provides a precise geographic location for each postcode unit in Great Britain. The product is a CSV file containing postcodes, grid references, NHS® health and regional health authority ...

If you're publishing this for viewers in the UK, the “right” CRS is EPSG 27700 (or 7405, if you're working in 3D), as Vesanto has already said. The OSGB grid does distort the islands, making it hard to tell that Edinburgh is actually further west than Bristol. But UK folks are used to this, on the mainland, at least. There isn't a single UTM zone that ...

You can download the data from open street map .Use the Export button on top left option to download data. Additionally if you are looking for an routing/ networking algorithm you can have a look at project OSRM which uses the above mentioned data for routing. hope it helps. good luck .

Here is my workflow for adding NPE tiles to the Openlayers plugin: In Windows Exporer, switch folder to C:\users\.qgis\python\plugins\openlayers_plugin\html copy osm.html to npe.html Open it with a text editor (I use notepad++ for that) change the following: line 3: <title>OpenLayers NPE Layer</title> line 32: "npe", line ...

I recommend using Map to KML in ArcMap 10. Labeling the features is not straightforward--although, there is a good discussion here. Begin by creating the map overlay you would like in ArcMap, including colored outlines, opacity, etc. Run Feature to Point Turn on the labels in your new point layer Save the map as a .mxd Run Map to KML (Define the output ...

I've seen some spatial data from the The GeoInformation Group, which has buildings with addresses for some of the larger metro areas. When a colleague of mine last checked with them they did not have a national database of information but were working on extending their cities, AFAIK.

I think I'm having a similar problem. @underdark- the problem is that geonetwork is set up by default to display data in EPSG 4326, but for the UK we want it in EPSG 27700, as that's what our data is projected in, and we would also like a more UK-focussed extent, rather than the whole world. You can add the additional CRS in config-gui.xml, but there are ...

There is no way in OpenLayers to have vector data transform or reproject after a chance in base layer built into the library. OpenLayers Ticket #1249 is related to this, and this is one of the areas that we expect to improve in OpenLayers 3.0. In the mean time, if you want this functionality, registering for a changebaselayer event and doing what you need ...
