The Ordnance Survey Data Enrichment Project

Published: 22 January 2014 Origin:  Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Internet and Culture (iCLIC)

Researchers from the Ordnance Survey and the University of Southampton have joined together to work on an interdisciplinary research project that focuses on data enrichment in a digital age.

Dr Jenny Harding (Ordnance Survey) and Professor Mary Orr (Modern Languages) lead the research team with Glen Hart (Ordnance Survey), Ashley Wright (Ordnance Survey), Dr Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon (Law) and Laura German (Web Science) as co-investigators.

This research focuses on how data at Ordnance Survey can be further enriched for business, research and leisure users through data mining of existing data and linking to other external datasets. It explores the potential for data enrichment at the Ordnance Survey and how this could be achieved (where necessary) by modification to its existing provenance metadata, legal, technological and ethical frameworks.

This one-year project is funded by Ordnance Survey and sponsored by the University of Southampton.
