To celebrate the 7th anniversary of OS OpenData, we asked founder of Parallel, Ashley Clough, to explain how OpenData has benefited them. Ashley said, “The two clear benefits for us with OS OpenData are the consistency of the data and its easy, free licensing”. Could this help you? Find out the different ways in which OS OpenData has helped Parallel: http://social.os.uk/iXlkq

Our GeoDataViz team took part in the ‘Late at the library: you are here’ event hosted by the British Library, with demos and displays by OS and the Geovation Hub, amongst other mappy delights. They arrived equipped with sharpies and an (almost) blank canvas of London. Their aim was to understand how those living in London visualise their city.

Did you miss Timeshift's 'A Very British Map' about OS last time around? Watch BBC4 at 8pm tomorrow night to catch up. It tells the tale of how we’ve mapped every square mile of Britain for the last 225 years. It covers our military origins through to how our leisure maps have helped people discover and explore the countryside and beyond. And for more of an update on OS today, click through to our blog: http://social.os.uk/WBJsx
