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.
What is OS Open Greenspace?
In short, it is a dataset that shows every publicly accessible recreational and leisure greenspace in Great Britain and is of huge interest for analysis and as a means of promoting the benefits of getting outside.
