I have been asked by editor of the Cartographic Journal to write a short piece on the effect of the release of OS OpenData on the OpenStreetMap project, and I am just trying to gather my thoughts, and make sure I cover all bases.
I was present at Blackadder's Society of Cartographers talk on "Why OSM won't be bulk importing OS OpenData" and am aware of the work Chris Hill has done on admin boundaries etc.
Obviously also aware of the ITO work with OS Locator and what people have done with that.
There was work on importing detailed water features, was that Chris as well (goes off to read back through his blog).
Can anyone point me to others who have explored the possibilities that OS OpenData provided - PARTICULARLY if they can evidence WHY it is NOT of value to OSM?
