Ordnance Survey data may become available for remixing - Guardian Unlmited.

Tim Berners-Lee pointed out to an Oxford University audience that getting the Ordnance Survey online would help build the "semantic web". He also stated that " If you don't make [lower-resolution mapping data] publicly available, there will be people with their cars and GPS devices, driving around with their laptops," he said. "They will be cataloguing every lane, and enjoying it, driving 4x4s behind your farm at the dead of night. There will, if necessary, be a grass-roots remapping."
