Trialling OS Open Greenspace on Living Atlas

Back in July, we announced the addition of OS Open Greenspace to Esri’s ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. We added this dataset to test how the data is received and to gather feedback from users who access it via Living Atlas. 

This decision is part of a trial which will enable us to understand if this integration has made it easier for users to optimise the value of OS data and if it solved any previous barriers. Ultimately, we want to know if it’s of value to our existing users and whether it encouraged new users of open geospatial data. 

If you’ve tried it and not let us know your thoughts, please fill out our survey. If you haven’t got involved yet, read on to learn more or check out the data now.

OS OpenData available in Esri Living Atlas

Do you use Esri’s Living Atlas? We’re working to make OS OpenData more accessible and have added OS Open Greenspace to Esri’s collection of geospatial data.

The ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World is the foremost collection of geographic information from around the globe.

We’ve added OS Open Greenspace to test how the data is received and are keen for feedback from users who access it via Living Atlas.

Why was OS Open Greenspace selected?
