Housing ideas on the map

Viv Alexander
Thank you for the 43 great ideas  you entered in our GeoVastion Challenge which was looking for solutions  to enable people to live in better places. The ideas have now been sent to  our judging panel to select the finalists for GeoVation Camp
Take a look at our OS OpenSpace map below to find our where the housing ideas are from.  You can use the links within the markers to find out more about the ideas.  Even though the GeoVation Challenge is closed you can still comment on the ideas .

The Judging Panel will be meeting in early December  to select the ideas which they think can make a difference to the housing issues identified. The ideas teams who are invited to GeoVation Camp from 16 – 18 January 2015 will be announced on 12 December.  Finalists will  need to bring a team of between 2 – 4 members to GeoVation Camp to work on building their selected idea into a prototype venture, identify  how to overcome challenges in implementing the idea, explore the skills and resources needed to sustain the idea and finally  pitch for a share of the £101,000 funding from Ordnance Survey and Land Registry.
