Recently, I’ve been looking at some of the Hampshire Hub open aerial data (see @Protohub on Twitter or this webpage: http://protohub.net/). This is a brilliant dataset, and the fact that it is open data just makes it even better. The Hub is a partnership of local authorities, national parks, emergency services, the military and parts of central government. The idea behind Geoger Ltd. is to be data and software independent and to use open data where possible. This way, the correct solution for the problem at hand is delivered to the client – open data won’t always provide the answer but it will in many situations.
Here are a few subset images that show some cool things in the Hampshire open imagery (click on an image for the full size).
