OS Locator update 201211

Posted by robert on 7 November 2012 in English (English)

Ordnance Survey have just released their November 2012 version of OS Locator, the comprehensive gazetteer for GB. According to my calculations there are 7609 new entries and 5077 removed entries since the last release in May.

I've updated my comparison tool Musical Chairs with the new data. New entries tend to show up prominently in the "recent relevant updates" view mode for a few days after an update, so this is a good way of taking a look at what's changed in your area.

I'd suggest GB mappers take a look at their area, even if not for the purpose of mapping - new releases of Locator often reveal some interesting things about new building projects and developments.
