Open Access to State-collected Geodata

I was pointed by Tim, one of our listeners, to a manifesto for open data access in the UK.  If any of you work in the UK regularly or have wanted to do work in the UK, you know that the Ordnance Survey’s data licensing is pricey.  This leaves some of us in the US with sticker shock since we have access to a wealth of inexpensive, if not free, data.   So if you would like to add your name to the list of those who are for open access to UK state-collected  geodata then head over and check the details.
