[Talk-GB] Latest OS Opendata

I've taken a look at the latest OS open data: OS Open Greenspace. I've 
created a simple overlay made of 1x1 degree overlay tiles, which is 
probably a bit big for some areas, so scrolling can be a bit unpredictable.


There are ten types of green space in the dataset:

"Allotments Or Community Growing Spaces"
"Bowling Green"
"Golf Course"
"Other Sports Facility"
"Play Space"
"Playing Field"
"Public Park Or Garden"
"Religious Grounds"
"Tennis Court"

Click on an area to show the type and the name if it has one.

Often the OS open data is a bit of a crude representation but this looks 
a pretty good. OS described it as "public open space" but it certainly 
includes some privately-owned spaces such as private golf courses. I 
think this is a useful dataset to check an area to see if OSM is missing 

Feedback is welcome. If it's useful, I'll probably sort out the tile 
sizes and change the colours for each type.
