Broken line of code stopping you from embedding a web-map on your website? Haven’t quite managed to mend the markers in your online location-based app? An offline mapping-related problem that you need some advice with? Well, have no fear, help is here!

Back by popular demand, our resident GeoDoctor returns on Thursday 17 January. From 10 am to 3 pm, we’ll be holding our first GeoSurgery of 2013 at the Google Campus in London. During the drop-in session, the GeoDoctor will be on hand to diagnose and provide advice for all of those Geo-related aches, pains and agonies that might have been preventing you from making headway with your project – helping you get back on track by prescribing the next course of action.


In the past, the GeoDoctor has appeared here on the blog, giving online advice on a variety of issues. He’s solved problems with mapping data in your Desktop GIS as well as curing many of those troublesome technical hitches that could have been holding back your web development with OS OpenSpace, our web mapping API.

On Thursday, for the first time, we’re holding a five-hour drop-in GeoSurgery to answer questions relating to the use of Geographic Information provided by us at Ordnance Survey, either on the web or in a traditional GIS system.

If you want to drop-in, simply ping us an email and let us know you’re coming – we look forward to meeting you!

If you can’t make this Thursday’s GeoSurgery, but still have a burning question why not take a look at the increasingly popular and well-used OS OpenSpace forum in the first instance? The forum is managed by our technical team who, along with the OS OpenSpace community, use the forum to resolve many problems such as “why do I keep getting a HTTP referrer message?” and “How do I add GPX route to my map?”

These questions and more have been asked and answered in the forum, so do take a look!
