Open source GIS guides

The following guides (PDF) were produced by our Consultancy and Technical Services team (formerly Pre- and Post-Sales Support) for members of the PSMA and OSMA, and distributed at events during late 2012.

Their content assumes that you have some understanding of database practices and SQL (so if you are just getting started with GIS, our videos explaining how you can use OS OpenData provide a gentler introduction).

We hope you find them useful.
