GISRUK 2016 OS Data Challenge – register your interest

The Ordnance Survey Data Challenge is open to all conference attendees. As a participant in the Challenge, you'll get to apply your methods and ideas to a sample dataset provided by us, and then present your results at the conference in March 2016. The winner will be awarded £200 of Amazon vouchers.

We welcome submissions from individuals or teams (a maximum of five members per team).

The datasets provided will be from our test site in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England. The data comprises of:

- Oblique imagery, kindly provided by Leica Geosystems, taken in November 2014 using the Leica RCD30 Oblique camera system.

- 3D data generated from the oblique images using image-matching technology. In the form of a point cloud, this is a very dense dataset which may require high-end computing power to process, so we will also provide a thinned version of the data – as either a point cloud or a gridded digital surface model (DSM).

The pictures show an oblique image of the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) and a visualisation of a point cloud of the BIC, with the points coloured using the oblique imagery.
