Hi All,

I am happy to confirm that I have received confirmation that the PRoW data
held at [1] is available under the OGL licence. This data is the digitised
Definitive Map, and is provided as a WMS map service. This can be viewed
online (through [1] or [2]), alternatively it can be opened in QGIS, or
similar. Direct imports into OSM are not advised as most of the paths are
already mapped. This data should therefore be used as a cross-reference and
for confirming path types.

Worcestershire have got one of the better GIS services and initial contact
with their GIS Programme Coordinator seemed positive.

Note: This follows the earlier approval to use the Definitive Statements
held by Worcestershire CC.
