3 Finding the data Ordnance Survey Open Data Contains: – GB post code data – Boundary Line data - County / Admin – Street Level maps – Location Finding data – Free to use https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/opendatadownload/products.html

4 Importing data into SQL OS Code Point Data Importer – Visual Studio – Converts Postcode data (geometry) into Lat/Long coordinates (geography) – This allows you to display postcodes on bing/google maps https://github.com/AdaTheDev/Ordnance-Survey-Code-Point-Data- Importer https://github.com/AdaTheDev/Ordnance-Survey-Code-Point-Data- Importer Shape2SQL – Will import shapefiles into SQL

5 Representing UK on a map Requires a Polygon dataset Can use OS Boundary data – Complex polygons – Splits country into mix of two/three tier divisions We’re using a simplified dataset showing traditional counties

6 Example Reports Heat Map Point data Bing Maps Overlay

7 Finally Limitations – free datasets, maybe not in the format you require, some missing data. Just a starting point for you to start using UK based spatial data in SQL Server. All information + links available on Martin Bell’s Blog –
