Time to account for Ordnance Survey costs

Ordnance Survey killer costs....

"How much would it cost to put some maps on a webserver that anybody could access? MySociety asked Ordnance Survey's licensing department. It calculated that displaying 16 "map tiles" with the relevant data would cost between £837.81 (for a 1:25,000 scale) or £1,032.71 (for a 1:250,000 scale)"

Solution: Ordnance Survey to drop the cost of it's maps (all maps digital, paper etc) this would allow more customers to be able to afford them (more customers, more profit)- raising profits once more.

Rip off Britain continues...
