Together with Land Registry, we recently launched our eighth GeoVation Challenge – “How can we enable people in Britain to live in better places?”. A share of £101,000 of funding is available to ideas that best address the long-term housing issues uncovered during our tried-and-trusted GeoVation Pow Wow methodology and you can check further details about how you can enter challenge on an earlier GeoVation blog.
Entrepreneurs, developers, geographers, community groups and innovators are encouraged to enter the challenge – in fact anyone that believes they have a great idea that addresses the issues we’ve identified. Ideas must make use of Ordnance Survey and Land Registry data and to help you, we’ve organised a roadshow of FREE open data masterclasses – check out this short promotional video to learn more about the events:
With five dates and locations to choose from, each masterclass will run from 9:30am – to 4pm and will help you gain a greater understanding around the geoprocessing tools and techniques needed to use data for the challenge.
So…if you’re interested in learning more about the £101,000 of funding that’s available through the GeoVation challenge and are keen to learn more about the types of data that will be used in the winning ventures – follow these links to reserve your space: –
