Peter Batty on Free Geodata, the Ordnance Survey and the USGS

The grass is always greener on the other side, Peter Batty argues in this rather funny “georant” at last week’s AGI GeoCommunity 09 in which he defends the Ordnance Survey, sort of, by pointing out that there are significant disadvantages to the U.S.’s free-data policies, too. (Unfortunately the video cuts off rather abruptly.)
