Here's one of Jerry's blog posts about the not-so-open Land Registry data:


and my post about testing using them:


As Tom says, these datasets are not Open Data and we cannot use them as a data source in OSM. I feel that the Open Government Licence should not be used in this case as it isn't  Open.

Hi Andy,


Both Chris Hill & I blogged about them at the time, but they NEVER had any semblance of being open data.


The same proved to be true of the Land Registry Prices Paid which now can only be used if you are an estate agent.


Owen has covered both on his Map Gubbins blog.


Have to dash, so no time to find the links.

As a follow-up, has anyone looked at the OGL licenced INSPIRE Land Registry index polygons?

Data is in GML format.

Agreed, though I wonder whether this will have any correlation with Land Registry. I'm guessing .gov isn’t that joined up.
