With only a few hours left to enter the GeoVation Challenge to help business save the environment, I thought it would be good to see where, in the UK, the ideas that have been submitted are from.  Take a look at our OS OpenSpace map below and you can use the links within the markers to find out more about the ideas and comment and vote on them.

If you’ve got an idea to  help British business be greener then it’s not too late to enter your own ideas  too . You have until 12 noon today (1 May)  to enter the GeoVation Challenge. We are looking for ideas that use Ordnance Survey data, including OS OpenData and OS OpenSpace, together with other open data. The best ideas will be invited to a weekend GeoVation Camp from 21 – 23 June 2013 where you can work on building your idea into a prototype and pitch to the judging panel.  Successful ideas receive a share of £100,000 funding to get started on developing their ideas.
