Today were are delighted to announce the winner of the GeoVation Ideas Challenge which ran from its 6 October 2009 launch with closing date of 12 noon on 4 January.
The GeoVation Ideas Challenge asked people to suggest a great idea that uses geography and post it on the Ideas Pages. Out of the total of 157 ideas the winners are:
The 10 winning ideas are those rated most highly by the rest of the GeoVation Community as reflected in the popularity assigned in the GeoVation Challenge website.
The winners will shortly be invited to Ordnance Survey Head Office in Southampton for lunch and a tour to learn how Britain’s maps are kept up to date. During the visit they will see how Ordnance Survey captures data and develops its products as well as having a peek at its Research activity, looking at how geographic information may be captured, stored, manipulated, delivered and used in the future.
If you have comments, experience, skills and expertise that may help these winning ideas develop further please post them at:
