Durham Open Data!

Posted by rivermont on 5 June 2018 in English (English).

I recently discovered the Durham County Open Data site. Licensed under ODbL 1.0, it is a large collection of various data sources from election result data to bike racks. Some of the datasets are a few years old but most of it seems up-to-date.
Hopefully someone will be able to use this; enjoy!

Looks like a nice source of information on buildings’ footprints and addresses. I may try to import it in a while

I went through and found similar sites for Scotland and London

Apologies this is a link to links on my blog where I wrote up about it and indicated what they were http://rounduptheusualsuspects.org/?p=1699

As per rivermont the data sources tend more to be land parcels and boundaries rather than actual physical ground

Some authorities produce maps of things like school catchment boundaries and development land - development land probably will end up being housing at some point so strategically it is very important.

Interestingly in the UK all these open data sites seem to be based around ArcGIS Web stack.
