We recently collaborated with YHA to create a stunning new display for their Youth Hostel in Castleton. The display offers visitors a variety of routes to help them #GetOutside and explore the stunning countryside that surrounds the hostel.
At the centre of the display is a large 3D contour map of the area which contains some topographic detail and local points of interest. There are six routes shown on the map using coloured pins and string which makes for a really striking, tactile display.
OS OpenData launched back in April 2010 and we’ve seen over a million downloads over the last five years. From red squirrels mapped in the Highlands to crime statistics overlaid on tweets, we’ve seen a huge variety of uses too. Most examples we see are online, so when we spotted OS OpenData used in a book recently, it caught our eye.
