Crowdsourcing data for maps and locations: apply for funding

Organisations can apply for a share of £1.5 million to look at ways for users of mapping apps and websites to contribute to better information on locations.

The aim of this competition is to support the Geospatial Commission to make information on location more accurate, complete and reliable, and increase the impact of charities working in social or environmental fields.

Projects should look at how to give users of mapping services the ability to identify and correct missing, out-of-date and incorrect information.

They should support one of the following areas to:

  • improve the delivery of local authority services such as parking or disabled access

  • support third-sector organisations in improving their work in social or environmental fields

  • enhance existing public sector open data, such as information on publicly accessible green space

The deadline for applications is at midday on 30 January 2019.
